Migrating Virtual Machine storage using Storage Migration

In a virtual environment, with thousands of physical and virtual servers, it is normal to face some problems or limitations that require reallocating a virtual machine to another location. Let's list some examples of the issues you might encounter:

  • Hardware limitation
  • Storage upgrade and maintenance
  • Poor VM Performance (I/O)
  • Fix configuration mistakes

Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V introduces a new feature to help you in these scenarios called storage migration, providing the ability to reallocate the virtual machine storage while it's running.

This recipe will walk through all the details and steps to show you how to move the virtual machine storage using the storage migration.
