    I have two servers running windows 2008 server standard.
    I need to move our virtual machine to another host. I've run the export and
    then the import process. I received an error and the machineon the new host
    wouldnt start.

    is there somoething more to this process?

    thanks.

  2. What is the error? If you create a new dummy VM on the new server with
    "install operating system later" will the VM start? Do you have
    Virtualization and DEP enabled in the BIOS?

    I tried to move my virtual 2k3 server(i was temporarily running exchange on
    it) - I got it moved(the problem was the trend antivirus which i
    uninstalled), now when i boot up it hangs at the applying computer settings.

    If I go an remove the two network adapters (one for lan the other for san) I
    can get in. I run the integration disk within the virtual server, then go
    back to hyperv manager and add the two adaptersback. I'm able to login run
    the integration disk again to pick up the adapters, configure them they
    work, I tell the VM to restart and then it hangs again. This is happening on
    both the server that originally hosted the VM and now on the new one.

    any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Ed
