    Saved-Critical

    Server 2k8 R2 with Hyper-V
    In the console of Hyper-V the vm is displaying the above and this message:

    "Cannot connect to virtual machine configuration storage"

    I cannot turn off, start or connect the vm. As this is the mail server I would really like to get it back. Please could someone give me some idea of what I can do?

    can you see the config file yourself when you browse to it?.

    forgive me, but have you tried rebooting the vm host?

    Yes the host has been restarted - no change on the vm. As for actual config files (assuming these to be a .bin and a .vsv) there's nothing in the folder!

    Sounds like a restore job mate

    Start digging through the backup media

    Resolved - created another vm and attached the original .vhd seems to be working ok. I'll leave it for about a week then delete the saved-critical vm. Or I might just leave it alone as it's not doing anything
