Hyper-V live migration (without clustering)

Posted: December 19, 2016 in Windows Server

Hyper-V live migration moves running virtual machines from one physical server to another with no impact on virtual machine availability to users.

In this example we’ll move server-2016 VM from HyperV-01 to HyperV-02 host

The following protocols can be used for Live Migration:

Kerberos avoids having to sign in to the server, but requires constrained delegation.

CredSSP  avoids configuring constrained delegation, but requires sign in to the source server

I’ll use Kerberos authentication,so we need to set up delegation.We’ll move VM from HyperV-01 to HyperV-02 and we’ll configure delegation on source (HyperV-01) and delegate rights to destionation Hyper-V host (HyperV-02)

In Active Directory right click on source computer account (from which we’ll move VM-HyperV-01)-Delegation tab-Add
