    Hyper-V / VM mixed up VHD files

    Hello everyone,
    I am using the Hyper-V on the Server 2008. I have attached VHD while virtual machine was running. I want some more information about the Hyper-V / VM mixed up VHD files. Also sometimes I have faced another problem. While mounting a hard disk file Virtual Machine file (. Vhd) as a loop device in Windows Server 2008 there was some error to users while accessing the virtual machine. Please help me to sort this issues.!!

    The first option was to go and see the snapshots of virtual machines, but none have had any active turning could be nothing more than that to grow so fast, so we take a look at snapshots default directory "C: \ ProgramData \ Microsoft \ Windows \ Hyper-V \ Snapshots "and voila, two 118Gb files and a 48GB, but for nothing a brief look at technet, and verify that the problem is that only done the mix (merge) when the machine is off, so we had a good idea, it's just matter of waiting and ready.

    Export the machine to a disk with enough space, delete the machine and the vhd, and re-imported into the disc space. On the machine that we have the problem we chose the option to export. Then ask us where we want to export the virtual machine, the export needs of course to be a record where we have enough space. We chose the unit, and the system takes care of the export move all necessary files, configuration, VHDs, snapshots (instantaneous), etc. except that the configuration xml files will be changed to.

    At the end of the path we have said we have all the data exported our machine available, and the original machine where it was. It is time to clear and free space. Once deleted from the import option of Hyper-V let you regain your machine. Ojo, before importing files put all the machine where we want to stay, for example I use to export the path "v: \ vms \ export" and I do not like the production machine is well, somewhat better as "V: \ VMs" and moving the files, and we're going to import. Next we seek the path where the files are, an eye for what we are asking is the directory where the virtual machine files, for example, if we did not move the machine directory, and export to "V: \ VMs \ export "so we have to choose the directory V: \ VMs \ export \ MACHINE."

    You mount a hard disk file Virtual Machine file (. Vhd) as a loop device in Windows Server 2008. This problem occurs if you mount a file. Vhd as a loopback device using the Hyper-V Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) API. To enforce security of the contents of a file. Vhd that is mounted as a loopback device, use one of the following methods :
    • Set permissions on NTFS file system files and folders in the file. Vhd mounted.
    • Use a separate server to which virtual machine users do not have access.
