SCVMM 2012 R2 Error 23317 When You Try to Apply Changes on VM That is Using Shared VHDX Disk

A customer of mine had a issue when he tried to change properties of Virtual Machines in System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2012 R2 which use shared VHDX, which were not created with VMM. The properties do he wanted to change had nothing to do with the Shared VHDX it self. He tried to set the availability set for these Virtual Machines.

The Error in SCVMM is the following:

Error (23317)
The operation Change properties of virtual machine is not permitted on a virtual machine that has shared virtual hard disks.

Recommended Action
The operation Change properties of virtual machine is not permitted on a virtual machine that has shared virtual hard disks.

Stanislav Zhelyazkov (Microsoft MVP) blogged about this in October 2013. The solution is pretty easy and is called PowerShell. Just do the modification but do not apply it. Use the script view in Virtual Machine Manager to get the code which would run behind the scene.

For example:

 
$VM = Get-SCVirtualMachine -VMMServer VMM01.contoso.local -Name "SQL001" | where {$_.VMHost.Name -eq "HV02.contoso.local"}
$OperatingSystem = Get-SCOperatingSystem -VMMServer VMM01.contoso.local | where {$_.Name -eq "Windows Server 2012 R2 Datacenter"}
$UserRole = Get-SCUserRole -VMMServer VMM01.contoso.local -Name "Administrator"
$CPUType = Get-SCCPUType -VMMServer VMM01.contoso.local | where {$_.Name -eq "3.60 GHz Xeon (2 MB L2 cache)"}
$AvailabilitySetNames = "SQL"
 
Set-SCVirtualMachine -VM $VM -Name "SQL001" -Description "" -OperatingSystem $OperatingSystem -Owner "contoso\admin" -UserRole $UserRole -CPUCount 4 -MemoryMB 16384 -DynamicMemoryEnabled $false -MemoryWeight 5000 -CPUExpectedUtilizationPercent 20 -DiskIops 0 -CPUMaximumPercent 100 -CPUReserve 0 -NumaIsolationRequired $false -NetworkUtilizationMbps 0 -CPURelativeWeight 100 -HighlyAvailable $true -HAVMPriority 2000 -DRProtectionRequired $false -SecureBootEnabled $true -CPULimitFunctionality $false -CPULimitForMigration $false -CPUType $CPUType -Tag "(none)" -QuotaPoint 1 -RunAsynchronously -DelayStartSeconds 0 -BlockDynamicOptimization $false -EnableOperatingSystemShutdown $true -EnableTimeSynchronization $true -EnableDataExchange $true -EnableHeartbeat $true -EnableBackup $true -AvailabilitySetNames $AvailabilitySetNames

Remove all the things you don’t need and run the script:

$VM = Get-SCVirtualMachine -Name "SQL001"
$AvailabilitySetNames = "SQL"
 
Set-SCVirtualMachine -VM $VM -AvailabilitySetNames $AvailabilitySetNames


Failover Cluster Manager Error caused by KB2750149

Hans Vredevoort (MVP Virtual Machine) yesterday reported a issue with one of the January updates for Windows Server 2012. After he deployed the latest Windows Updates from January to the Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V Cluster it was not possible to view the roles of this Cluster and got the following error:

Windows Server 2012 Failover Cluster Error

The issue only affect the MMC with the Failover Cluster Manager. All roles on the Cluster still run fine and without any issues.

After he reported this problem, he got a quick note from the Microsoft cluster team that KB2750149 was the cause of this problem and that the current advice is to uninstall this update until further notice.

Thanks to Hans for reporting this issue.



SCVMM 2012 SP1 Error: Windows network virtualization is not enabled on a host NIC available for placement

System Center Logo

If you are running Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V hosts and you are managing them with System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2012 SP1 and you are running VM Networks with Network Virtualization you can get the following error when you try to deploy a new Virtual Machine to the Hyper-V host.

“Windows network virtualization is not enabled on a host NIC available for placement”

Windows network virtualization is not enabled on a host NIC available for placement

This happens if:

  • You create a Logical Network with Network Virtualization enabled
  • You add the Logical Network to a Host Adapter or a Logical Switch on the Hyper-V host
  • You create a Isolated VM Network
  • Deploy a new Virtual Machine with the VM Network.

Resolution:

  • Enable the Windows Network Virtualization Filter driver on the Hyper-V host
Windows Network Virtualization Filter driver

Windows Network Virtualization Filter driver

If you are running this on a Team you have to enable the Windows Network Virtualization Filter driver on the Network Adapter Team.



Windows Live error 8600108 when syncing Windows Live with Windows Phone

Yesterday morning I realized I did not get any mails over night so something must be wrong with the sync of my Windows Live/Hotmail account. After checking my Windows Live account under settings –> Email+accounts I could see the message “account is not up-to-date”. By tapping on the Windows Live account I got the following error message.

Windows Live Error 8600108

[code]Windows Live error

Not updated
We’re having a problem synchronizing with m.hotmail.com
Last tried [xx] seconds ago
Error code: 8600108[/code]

After searching the web for some time I found the solution, the problem only appeared when I was syncing E-Mail. After unchecking the E-Mail check box the sync worked fine, except the mail sync of course. Now after it seems that this had to be a problem with a email. I deleted the latest messages on live.com and check the checkbox for E-Mail in my Windows Live account on my phone again the sync worked fine again.

From support.microsoft.com:

This error can indicate a back-end mail server issue, which may be caused when Windows Live tries to sync an email with a large or problematic Word document such as an attachment. There could also be a temporary service outage.

HP Network Interface does not start.

I just installed two new HP ProLiant DL360 G6 with Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2. Everything worked fine until I installed the HP Support Pack which includes Drivers and Firmware for the HP Server.

This device cannot start. (Code 10)

After I installed the HP ProLiant Support Pack one of my Network Interfaces could not start. I got the following error in the Device Manager:

HP NC382i DP Virtual Bus Device
This device cannot start. (Code 10)

I tried to uninstall the device and rebooted the server but this didn’t work. I had still the same error.

The problem was that just uninstalling the driver does not work, you also have to check the checkbox on “Delete the driver software for this device.”

Delete the driver software for this deviceAfter doing that you can rescan for new hardware and the system will find this adapter again and everything will work fine.
