Turn on replica crashes the cluster

Veeam support case ID # 01818288

After turning on a replicated VM, both hyper-v nodes went to blue screen of death. Below is the configuration details:

Veeam version: Veeam 9 with the latest update running on Windows 2012R2
Windows OS: Windows Server 2008R2 with Hyper-V role enabled
Cluster information: both nodes are operating under a failed over cluster and managed by SCVMM

Veeam infrastructure setup: Veeam communicates with both hyper-v nodes individually, not added via a cluster or SCVMM

Replication job setup: replicate a VM (belong to the failover cluster) from node01 to a different Cluster Shared Volumes on the same node.

During the replication, two warnings showed on the process list:
Code: Select all
Failed to flush change tracking data. Using full scan incremental run
Failed to connect restored VM to the network Details: The RPC server is unavailable. (Exception from HRESULT: x0x800706BA)

After the replication, VM_replica only shows under Hyper-V Manager however not showing under SCVMM or Failover cluster.

After created a new VM on the cluster and ''imported'' the replica VHD, turning on the replica VM crashed both hyper-v nodes. After the node booted up, Event 1001 Bugcheck was displayed on the hyper-v windows event viewer. Says the computer has rebooted from a bugcheck.

Called Veeam support who suggested adding both VMs through SCVMM, however the support person also claimed he is not familiar with Hyper-V, so I'd like to have some opinions here.

SCVMM should register replica VM after its creation. Have you tried to rescan hosts from SCVMM console? Also, you always can ask your engineer to hand your case over to anyone who is familiar with Hyper-V.
