  • Win2k3/DC image failed to boot on HyperV 2012

    Windows Server 2003 DC VM failed to boot on Hyper-V 2012 with error: The disk image file is corrupted.

    How and what is the best solution to resolve this issue?

    Restore from backup. If that's not possible then delete the VM, clean up the DC related data in AD and DNS and build a new DC.

    This all assumes that you:

    A. Have a backup of the DC VM

    OR

    B. Have another DC.

      Yes, we rebuild the server but we are looking for a permanent solution to prevent this from happening again.

        Regular backups

        For the image to corrupt, something must go badly wrong on the host (improper shutdown / power outage / loss of access to SAN as examples) so investigate what happened and prevent that happening again

          What are you storing your VMs on? Is there AV on the Hyper-v host?
