When trying to Live Migrate a virtual machine, the process might fail and inform you that your virtual machine is not compatible with the target node. If you try to Move (instead of Live Migrate) the virtual machine to another node, the process will again fail and you the following event will be logged:
I know its a bit late, but here is the presentation I gave on November 3rd at the Microsoft convention ? Let?s Talk Business-Tech that was held at Tel Aviv. During the presentation, my co-presenter Ronen Gabay and myself talked about the new features of Failover Clustering in Windows 2008 R2. We talked about Geo-Clusters,
You can now download VMM 2008 R2 Beta from https://connect.microsoft.com. I?ve already tested it with Live Migration and it work great! (we had a demonstration for it at a Municipality Convention in Jerusalem recently) so take the time to play with it a little. What’s New in VMM 2008 R2 Beta System Center Virtual Machine
Windows 2008 R2 will feature some major DFS improvements, following is an explanation of them: 1. Support for Windows Failover Clusters In Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Failover clusters can be configured to be part of a replication group. Windows Failover clustering technology enables administrators to configure services and applications to be highly available. Busy
Microsoft?s Virtualization UA team has put together some great Hyper-V clustering guidance on TechNet. Content includes: Design for a Failover Cluster in Which All Nodes Run Hyper-V – http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=129117 Requirements and Recommendations for Failover Clusters in Which All Nodes Run Hyper-V – http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=129110 Checklist: Failover Cluster in Which the Servers Run Hyper-V – http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=129123 Enjoy!
SCOM MVP Andy Dominey has compiled a very nice document on installing System Center Operations Manager 2007 with high availability. Get it from here – SCOM in Highly Available and Distributed Enterprise Environments.
As promised, I’ve uploaded the presentations from the sessions I gave on December 18th at Microsoft Israel. Enjoy.

I had the opportunity today (16.9.08) to participate in Microsoft?s getVIRTUALnow event, and to present the session “Physical and Virtual Server Management” I presented my take on data center management, which involves automating management tasks in response to system\application states. It was impressive to see the number of vendors that were present in the event. Microsoft
