My Hyper-V storage drive broke down, have backups for that drive, so I have files for VMs. Replaced drive copied files from backup but Hyper-v manager doesn't see any VMs. Trying to import VMs from those files gets me error Unspecified error (0x8004005).
Both Restore and Register Import options fail Copy succeeds but it says that it will create new ID is that bad? If windows license is tied to that VM will it require reactivation?
Any ideas why import fails, maybe because it was disk failure Hyper-v still somehow remembers VMs that was on failed drive and dont let me import same IDs? Get-VM doesn't show any VMs also Hyper-v Manager shows up empty.
