Hyper-V live migration failed

Eric 21 Reputation points

Hi all,

I have 3 host on Win Server 2016 running Hyper V and clustering. Recently not able to live migrate some VM from Host 1 to 3 or Host 2 to 3.

Below are the errors i encounter - cluster node is not the owner of a group


Is this a network issue ?

    According to the situation you described above, let me analyze these two errors for you:

    1. Error code: 0x80071398
      (1) Analysis: This may be because you forgot to check a node when you checked Posible Owners.

    (2) The specific method is: right-click "Cluster Core Resources", then select "Advanced Policies" in "Properties", and check all nodes.

    1. Access is denied
      In this case, we first need to determine whether the permissions on the node are sufficient:
      (1) Ensure that the user account logged in by the node is a member of the administrator group

    (2) Ensure that both the source server and the target server exist in the same AD domain or are members of mutually trusted AD domains;

    The specific operation of live migration is shown in the link below:
    Hope my answer can help you!

    Best Regards,

    Hi Eric-6912,

    Is there enough storage space on the nodes to allow the migration of the VMs?

    This document may help:

    https:// docs. microsoft. com/en-us/troubleshoot/windows-server/virtualization/troubleshoot-live-migration-issues

    Microsoft Hyper-V doesn't require cluster nodes to use identical hardware. However, each host server in a Hyper-V cluster must use similar processors to accommodate live migrations.

    Mismatched versions of Hyper-V within a failover cluster could also cause a live migration to fail.

    I hope this answers your question.
