    Hyper-V Missing VMs


    Hello everyone,

    I had 20 VMs in a clustered Hyper-V, by mistake I deleted the Virtual
    machine resource, now the machines are not in the Hyper-V configuration
    anymore.

    The files are intact and are in the LUN, but the problem is when I try to
    import them a get the error:
    Import failed. Unable to find virtual machine import files under location
    'H:\pathtovm'. You can import a virtual machine only if you used Hyper-V to
    create and export it.


    Well, I know that the best way is to use the import/export procedure, but in
    this scenario it was cause by a mistake...

    Does anyone knows how to get these machines back to Hyper-V console?

    Thank you

    You can only import a machine that was exported. Rather than import, your
    best solution is to create a new machine (name can be the same) and point to
    the existing VHD(s). You'll need to recreate your settings for networking,
    processors, RAM, etc.
