we have a hyper-v 2008r2 environment and vm's stored on a dell powervault. I have created a new LUN and attached it to the host that currently has the vm's that I need to move to this newly created LUN.
So my host has two drive letters, ie X: and Y:
X: has the currently running guests
Y: is empty and I want to move the guests onto it.
I find that restoring a vm via veeam is much much much faster than using any copy. move, export, import feature of hyper-v.
Can I run restore, select the source host as the target host and select Y: as the destination without any issues? I went through the restore wizard and it says that the vm needs to be powered off message followed by the source vm will be automatically deleted. I didnt carry on because I wasnt sure if this would work anyway.
Unless there's a better way, what are my options now?
