Windows Serve 2008 R2. Not Activate Server if you have a VM

I have a VM with Windows Server 2008 R2.

If you delete the machine, and you copy de .vhd file you need to activate again the machine.

You need VMM08 or Export the VM with the Hyper-V MMC.

When you export the VM, you save everything and you save inside the folder:
a config.xml file
a .reg file.
You can edit these files, and rename the options. So you can use like a template to import new machines inside your HYper-V and you dont need activate the Windows Server 2008 R2.


Changing the primary domain DNS name of this computer to "" failed.


When I put a new Windows Server 2008 R2 in my domain I got this error
The machine works well.
But It is weird.

A Hyper-V R2 Cluster R2 with a Cluster Shared Volumes (CSV)

I installed Windows Server 2008 R2.
I would like to test a Hyper-V Cluster with CSV (Cluster Shared Volumes)
I follow this link: (yes, I know , There are many links about that, so I am not going to explain again).

I upload some pictures with some notes:

The cluster validation was well

I put the VM in the cluster without problems.
I have several problems because the virtual NICs in both nodes havent the same name.
When I fixed the name. Everything went well
The CSV files worked very well. I have a LeftHand iSCSI SAN.
The live migration ran very well. I didnt lost any ping.
