Instant recovery to hyperv

Hi Folks,

I took a quick look in the documentation but could not find whether or not there is a powershell cmdlet for instant recovery to hyperv. Forgive me if it was staring me in the face... :)

Hi Ptide,

Sorry, wrote this before my caffeine fix, I meant the new instant recovery to hyperv from a physical endpoint, or will this work as well for that.

Nope, this functionality is yet to be covered with PS cmdlets. Thanks.

Hi Vladimir,

I got this to work Start-VBREpInstantRecovery but then since it creates a generation 2 vm won't boot the efi bios. I am playing with it but understand why this is not supported :)

You've discovered the right cmdlet, indeed. I must have forgotten that this command was added (too much happening between versions). :)

Anyway, did I get it right that you're trying to instantly recover physical machine that has EFI bios?

Thanks.

Hi Vladimir,

Yes exactly to an EFI bios. When I did BMR's in the past I had to use a windows iso and start the setup so that it would create the efi partitions first. Then boot again with the Veeam ISO to install then boot again in EFI mode (this was on vmware). So I was hoping that the instant restore to hyperv might make this easier but now see this issue with generation 2 hyperv vm's.
