    When I run the Computer Management Snap on the local server i get an error
    message in the status bar: Unable to Connect to Virtual Disk Service.
    In the System event log, there are four message in this order:

    Service started. (Source = Virtual Disk Service)
    Service stopped. (Source = Virtual Disk Service)
    The Virtual Disk service entered the running state. (Source = Service
    Control Manager)
    The Virtual Disk service entered the stopped state. (Source = Service
    Control Manager)

    so there are no errors.

    the environment is Windows 2008 R2 Standard (build 7100). It is in its own
    workgroup. It has 8GM RAM, 4 SATA drives (2 are mirrored 512GB, 1TB and 1
    the only roles are Hyper-V and Backup and File Services
    The guest OS is SBS2008 and is the domain controller

    thanks for any suggestions
