2012 Hyperv vm storage migration failed

Thanos Mangos 1 Reputation point


We have a standalone HyperV (2012) which is connected to a HP 3PAR via fiber optic.
We have created two virtual volumes in 3PAR and exported them to the server.
One of it contains all the virtual machines that are hosted to this specific hyperv

We tried to move the virtual machines from one virtual volume to another (move only vms' storage). Two of these moves failed with the error (screenshot attached).
The only problem occured is that in both virtual machine settings the disks (not all of them) are in the new path.

Both virtual machines are working fine but now, with this wrong path in virtual disks i cannot move them or backup them (via veeam).

Any suggestions?66966-error.png

    Try to remove the VHD from the VM, then move the VHD file to the new location and re-attach it to the VM.
    If the above doesn't work, please check if there is any event ID related to the issue in event viewer, if yes, please provide the detailed information.

    Thanks for your time!
