Hyper-V Headache - Can't create vhd's
Just taken over as network manager in a school which uses Hyper-V on Server 2008 and im have a few problems with it.
When i try and create a vhd, it just says creating disk...i have left it all weekend and its just stuck on the same stage. Its only a 80GB drive i'm trying to make.
I then created a virtual machine without a vhd, it created instantly, then used the vhd tool to make a quick drive, went into the settings of the vm and pointed it to the vhd i created with the tool and it just locked up hyper-v manager.
I then came out of everything, went back into it and it seems to have worked as i managed to get server 2012 on the vm.
Why is it crashing so much and why can't i create a vhd in the normal way? I have left it for 48hrs + with no joy. I can only make quick drives with the tool.
I am used to vmware, not liking Hyper-V very much. Might have to switch when funds are available.
