(2009-06-16) Importing Hyper-V VMs

Posted by Jorge on 2009-06-16


If you have exported a Hyper-V VM to a folder and then try to import it again on another computer for example, you might get the following error:

 

[Window Title]
Hyper-V Manager

[Main Instruction]
A server error occurred while attempting to import the virtual machine.

[Content]
Import failed.

[Expanded Information]
Import failed. Unable to save the virtual machine under location ‘E:\VMStore_HYPER-V_EXPORTS\OCG_ILM2\DEMO-Server’. Error: General access denied error (0x80070005)

[^] Hide details [Close]

I solved this by giving the Network Service account modify permissions to the folder and its subfolders that contained the VM Export. Worked like a charm for me.

Cheers,
Jorge
