Hyper-V Missing VMs

J
#1
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.
