Standard Checkpoint (formerly known as Snapshots) capture the current state, data, and hardware configuration of a running virtual machine.  When you revert or apply a previous created checkpoint the VM are returned to the exact state it was in when the Standard checkpoint was created.  Including hardware setting contained in the VM configuration file.  Standard checkpoints are intended for test and production environments.

Production Checkpoints (New Server 2016) are a point in time snaphot of the VM.  When restored they are supported in a production environment for production workloads.  This is achieved using VSS backup technologies within the guest VM.

How to configure Production or Standard Checkpoints:

In Hyper-V Manager, right click on the appropriate VM and click Settings.

Under Management, select Checkpoints.

In the right hand pane select the desired checkpoint.

 

Note:  If you choose production you can also choose whether or not to create a standard checkpoint in the event a production checkpoint can’t be created.

If you want to store your checkpoint in a different place than the default location, choose where to store the checkpoint and click Apply.

So once you have decided which type of checkpoint your organization wants to use.  It is simple to configure.  Remember each VM is configured individually.

Until Next Time, RIDE SAFE!

Have you ever found yourself in a situation with a production VM where you need to add a new NIC or replace a failed NIC.  Until now just like a physical computer you had to shutdown the VM to add or remove the NIC.

Now in Windows Server 2016 you can hot add and remove a NIC from a running VM.  There a few requirements that must be met.

  • Windows Server 2016 or Windows 10 Hyper-V Host
  • Generation 2 VMs
  • VM Configuration must be upgraded.
  • VM Guest either Windows or Linux operating systems.

Having this capability should make our lives easier as IT Admins when having to add or replace Network Adapters.

Until Next Time, RIDE SAFE!

Before you are able to build a virtualized environment you will need to install and configure the Hyper-V role on your Windows 2008, Windows 2008 R2, Windows 2012 or Windows 2012 R2 server. The procedure is pretty much the same for all the above operating systems.  You can install the role either through PowerShell or with the graphical Server Manager. I will demonstrate both methods.

Option 1 – PowerShell.

Launch PowerShell

  • From Taskbar icon
  • From Aps tiles menu
  • Type PowerShell while on the tiles screen

Type Get-WindowsFeature to retrieve installed roles and features and to determine the name of the role you want to install.

001-how-to-install-the-hyper-v-role-in-windows-server

002-how-to-install-the-hyper-v-role-in-windows-server

Note the name of the role we want to install is Hyper-V

Type Install-WindowsFeature Hyper-v –IncludeManagementTools

Note:  Adding the –IncludeManagementTools switch will add the Hyper-V graphical management tools, otherwise you will have to install the tools separately.  You could also install the feature RSAT-Hyper-V-Tools to add the graphical management tools.

First off what is nested virtualization?  Nested virtualization is the ability to run Hyper-V inside of a virtualized machine.  This will allow you to install a physical host with the Hyper-V role installed and then create a virtual machine (VM) and install Hyper-V which in turn will allow you to run additional VMs.

For instructor-led Windows Server 2016 training, see our course schedule.

For Microsoft Windows Server 2016, see Nested Virtualization in Windows Server 2016.

There are few prerequisites that must be met before nested virtualization is supported.  There is both operating system and Hyper-V setting that must be configured.  These settings are as follows:

  • Must be running Windows 10 Build 10565 or later.
  • The host and nested VM must be running the same build of Win 10.
  • Min 4GB RAM on the host.
  • Dynamic RAM must be disabled on the nested VM.
  • No Checkpoints can be made on the nested VM. (desired to checkpoint hosted VM in the nested VM must be running version 8 of the VM)
  • MAC Address Spoofing has to be enable on the nest VM NIC or a NAT Virtual Switch has to be created.

Once the VM has been configured to be a nested VM it no longer supports live migrations.

How to enable nested virtualization:

  • Create a hosted VM running the same operating system as the physical host. Then power it off.
  • Configure the host to support nested virtualization:
    • Use one of the following PowerShell Cmdlets:

Set-VMProcessor -VMName <VMName> -ExposeVirtualizationExtensions $true

  • Or,

Invoke-WebRequest https:/raw.githubusercontent.com/Microsot/Virtualization-Documentation/maste/hyperv-tools/nested/Enable-NestedVm.ps1 –Outfile ~/enable-NestedVm.ps1 ~Enable-NestedVm.ps1 –VmName <VMName>

Note:  The second cmdlet downloads a script from githubusercontent.com and then executes it.

Turn on the nested VM and you are ready to start creating VMs in your nested environment.

Recently while attempting to install Windows Server 2012 R2 on a virtual machine I received the following error after clicking the Install button:

Error code 0xE0000100

So based on the error my first assumption was my installation ISO must be corrupted, so I downloaded a new file from MSDN.  After the downloading the new ISO I received the same error.  So being a little stubborn I tried a Server 2012 ISO I had and again the same error.  I tried a Windows 8 ISO I had available, didn’t get the same error but an issue reading the license file.

So next assumption maybe somehow Hyper-V has gotten corrupted.  So I completely uninstall the Hyper-V role and ensure I clean the registry of any instances of Hyper-V.  Reinstall Hyper-V wouldn’t you know it the same error.  Now I am getting a little frustrated.  So I started researching the 0xE0000100 error code.  Found lots of irrelevant stuff out there.  But, then stumbled across the true cause of the error.

The default memory value when creating a virtual machine in Hyper-V is 512MB which is the minimum memory required to install Windows Server 2012 R2.  I had selected use Dynamic Memory so I assumed it allocate what was needed.  What I found was it doesn’t.  Because the drive is not formatted yet and no memory swap file exists the ISO was unable to extract into memory.  As a result the installation files were not available to continue.  There are 2 solutions to the problem.  The easiest is to up your memory larger the 800 MB or prior to pressing the Install button exit to a command prompt, format the drive and create a memory swap file.

I chose the easier of the 2 by upping my memory to 1024 MB.  Installation completed without any other issues.

Hope this solves your installation problem and you research the error prior to jumping through hoops like I did.

Until next time, RIDE SAFE!!
