Recently one of my customer’s HYPER-V environment recovered from power failure. Despite having secondary power to maintain the servers up and running switches redundancy power has not been overlooked . Nevertheless after the power restore some of the VM’s in the cluster has been started acting funny inside the HYPER-V manager console.
When I overlook at the cluster MMC VM’s status is in good mode without any errors. In the particular node event viewer throwing the event id 19050. Further searching on the search engine gave me this result, not much help though. Based on the scenario we knew VM is functioning properly and this has to be intermittent problem. Our final resolution has been restart the VM and let the VM move to correct host based on the priority order.
Don’t we all love some hush hush news come in advance to our attention? Well Microsoft just did it again If you’re a VMware customer then it’s time for you to pause your renewal and give attention to Microsoft direction and offering. Microsoft is ready to give away big surprise!!!
Ok let me make it short and come to the core story
If you switch from VMware to Hyper-V from during September 1, 2016, through June 30, 2017, you can get free Windows Server Datacenter licenses when buying Windows Server Datacenter + Software Assurance. That ultimately means you only pay for Software Assurance.
All the latest information about this offer and how to calculate the TCO can be found in here. If you’re wondering what kind of enhancement HYPER-V 2016 can provide then you’ll be surprised too. Detail information can be found here.
So for my VMWare customers all I can say is don’t delay this opportunity, contact your Microsoft Account Manager and start engaging on this process.
