Windows Server 2012 R2 Update KB2919355 causing failed backups of Hyper-V VM’s

After installation of Windows Server 2012 R2 Update KB2919355, backups of Hyper-V VM’s fail. The error is

 

Error: Client error: The system cannot find the file specified

This error is not caused by the backup software nor the storage used. It is a bug in the Microsoft update. Veeam is curently working on a workaround which is expected to be released this Tuesday.

So be carefull installing this Microsoft update.

StarWind V8 Release Candidate Is Available Now!

StarWind Software released the Release Candidate of  StarWind V8. The functionality and architecture of this software is similar to VMware VSAN. It can be installed on both Hyper-V and ESXi and converts local storage to a distributed shared storage.

General availability is expected in Q2 2014

starwind

Download the RC here.

It offers three products that share a common engine:

  • StarWind SAN – a unique system that allows you to create a high-performance and fault-tolerant shared storage on commodity hardware, saving $$$.
  • StarWind VSAN – a virtual SAN sharing a server with Hyper-V on parent partition. Convenient and as easy to manage as any Windows software.
  • StarWind VSA – a virtual storage appliance that merges with VMware and runs in a VM, making your system more efficient and convenient to use.

It is scalable to an unlimited number of nodes, optimized for flash as the primary storage, with its own LSFS and upgraded asynchronous replication.

StarWind SAN, the flagship product, runs on commodity servers’ hardware and converts them into high-performance, fault-tolerant SAN at a fraction of the cost and complexity associated with traditional SAN-based storage infrastructures. With its integrated VSA builder and scale-out architecture, StarWind SAN became the first solution running on Windows that creates clusters of multiple hypervisor hosts without separate physical shared storage (unlike SAS (JBOD), FC or iSCSI). With this release, StarWind supports the latest versions of both VMware and Microsoft platforms.

StarWind virtual SAN (VSAN) is a leading software defined storage for Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 and Microsoft Hyper-V 3.0. The functionality and architecture of this software is similar to VMware VSAN. It runs inside parent partitions of hypervisor hosts and turns their directly attached storage (DAS) into fault-tolerant SAN. StarWind VSA follows the VMware VSA concept also, and operates inside a VM on the ESXi host, creating a fault-tolerant shared storage of the hypervisor resources.

StarWind V8 RC presents high-performance caching that allows affordable MLC SSDs to be used as level-2 flash cache and fast RAM to be used as level-1 cache. StarWind utilizes solid-state disks / flash cards as the primary storage with a dedicated flash-aware Log-Structured File System (LSFS).

Another major advantage over multiple virtual storage solutions is built-in asynchronous WAN-replication, which ensures effective disaster recovery. StarWind’s support of WAN-acceleration technologies also enables data replication over slow and cheap connections.

StarWind V8 RC includes a set of powerful experimental features including: LSFS, which eliminates the I/O blender effect; synchronous replication for clustered LSFS devices; and in-memory operation, which creates a HA cluster with one node running on RAM-disk.

FreeBSD 10.0 release has built in Hyper-V support

FreeBSD 10.0 release is the first release which has  native paravirtualized drivers and Hyper-V Integration Services built in the amd64 kernel. In previous releases additional software had to be installed to be able to run FreeBSD on Hyper-V.

Mind these are part of the amd64 GENERIC kernel. For i386 some manual steps needs to be taken.

For instructions see the FreeBSD Wiki page The info below was copied from the Wiki page.

As of FreeBSD 10.0, Hyper-V integration services provide the following functionality:

  1. Support for integrated shutdown from Hyper-V console.
  2. Support for keeping time synchronized between FreeBSD guest and Hyper-V host.
  3. Support for Hyper-V specific IDE and SCSI storage devices.
  4. Support for Hyper-V specific network adapter.
  5. Live migration with and without static IP migration. Note that to enable static IP migration, administrators will need to include the KVP driver and daemon available in FreeBSD 10.0 ports for Hyper-V

Veeam releases free RDP Appliance for Hyper-V Server

Microsoft has a free hypervisor offering called Hyper-V Server 2012 R2. Hyper-V Server 2012 R2 is fully equal to the Hyper-V role in Windows Server 2012. The only item not available in the free edition is the free usage rights for virtual machines running on a host installed with Hyper-V. Each virtual machine instance running on free Hyper-V Server 2012 R2 needs to be licensed.

Hyper-V Server 2012 R2 comes as a core installation. This means there is no graphical userinterface available to perform management. Especially connecting to the console of the virtual machine can be a challenge. Hyper-V Manager does not run on the Hyper-V Server itself. Adminstrators needs access to another Windows Server 2012 or Windows 8 with   Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT) installed to be able to access the console of VM’s.

Veeam to the rescue. The company released a free virtual appliance which is a RDP proxy. The appliance runs CentOS and installs on a Hyper-V host. The appliance can connect to virtual machines using VMconnect. VMconnect is a modified RDP for connection to consoles of virtual machines. VMconnect is able to connect even when the virtual machine does not have an IP-address.

PXE boot will be supported on synthetic NIC in Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V R2

When a virtual machine running on Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V is booted over the network using PXE, only the legacy network adapter can be used. This legacy adapter is limited to 100 Mbps. The much faster synthetic NIC supporting 10 Gbps does not support PXE. This is not ideal when for example Citrix PVS is used to provision new virtual machines. This means two network adapters need to be configured for the virtual machine. See my post on this restriction here.

This restriction is solved in Windows Server 2012 R2. Server 2012 R2 Hyper-v allows virtual machines to be created using the current Generation 1 type, or using the new Generation 2.

Generation 2 virtual machines only support synthetic network interface cards. New is that the synthetic NIC does support PXE network boot.

However, Generation 2 virtual machines only support 64-bit editions of Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2 as guest operating systems.

Gartner: Can you replace VMware with Hyper-V or other competitor?

Gartner Catalyst Conference is an event for advisors and decision makers in IT. July 29- August 1 2013 the event was held in San Diego having tracks on Cloud computing, mobility, virtual datacenter and big data. An overview of the agenda can be seen here.

One of the sessions was  titled D4 – Rethinking Your Hypervisor Choice: Can You Replace VMware. The session presented by Chris Wolf of Gartner  has been recorded and is available for viewing here. Registration is required but is free and allows you to view up to three sessions for free.

The highlights of the sessions are written in this blogpost.

Gartner compared 5 x86 virtualization solutions: vSphere 5.1, Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V, Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization (RHEV), Citrix XenServer and Oracle VM.

Gartner uses their Evaluation Criteria for x86 Server Virtualization Infrastructure to assess the solutions and to be able to compare them. This helps customers to answer the question “What product is right for my technical requirements?” The Evaluation Criteria complements the Magic Quadrant which helps customers to select vendors for a short list.

Gartner uses in total 241 criteria. Criteria are features on compute, storage, networking, Guest OS support, management, business continuity etc.  70 of those criteria are ranked as required features by Gartner, 117 preferred and 45 are optional. Gartner selects the criteria based on customer requirements they get from Gartner customers. Vendors do not have any influence on the selection of criteria.

Required criteria are features which are essential for the typical large Enterprise. Products that do not meet 100% of the required criteria are considered not ready for large-scale Enterprise production workloads.

Preferred are nice to have features.They improve TCO for instance but are not deal breakers.  Optional features are those needed for selected deployments or use cases. All the results of the product assessments have been checked by the vendors on results being factual correct,

Gartner customers can get an Excel spreadsheet listing all the criteria and  results of the assessment.

The slide below shows the results of the assessment. VMware vSphere is the leader. It is the only solution on the market which scores 100% on the required criteria. Hyper-V is very close behind. Interesting to see is that RHEV scores slightly better than Citrix XenServer.

slide1

 

Results of the product comparison are showed in so called spider graphs or radar charts. The next slide shows the score of the required, preferred and optional features. vSphere is a bullseye. Hyper-V has some small white spaces in Business Continuity and Guest OS support

 

slide2

vSphere and Hyper-V are very close to each other when looking at the  required features. Hyper-V supports less operating systems in the guest. The gap with vSphere is also caused by less support of snapshots of Linux guests by Hyper-V. A Linux guest will be temporary suspended prior to a backup when snapshots are used in a Hyper-V environment.
Another of Hyper-V weaknesses  is lack of central management. Certain tasks can only be done in either Hyper-V manager, SCVMM or Powershell. Gartners says VMware offers the best GUI management solution as basically all operations can be done using  vCenter Server.

Both VMware and Microsoft management tooling is able to manage other hypervisors. However Gartner is not aware of any Gartner customer who is using SCVMM to manage ESXI or using vCenter Server to manage Hyper-V.

vSphere weakness is its costs. Other weaknesses mentioned by Gartner are all shared with the other solutions.

Hyper-V-strengthsHyper-V-weaknesses

An interesting remark by Chris Wolf is  that Gartner does not see large scale clusters being used in enterprises. Typically in enterprises virtualization clusters are 32 nodes or less.

 

The slides below show some of the criteria used by Gartner.

MAT (powered by Project Shift) converts from VMware to Hyper-V in less than 5 minutes

With Microsoft Hyper-V having  a rich feature set and offering a low cost purchase model,  current VMware vSphere customers may be  looking into using Hyper-V as an alternative.

However converting VMware virtual machines to Microsoft Hyper-V can be a complex and time consuming task when many vm’s are involved. One of the challenges is downtime. Because VMware is using a different format for its virtual disks than Hyper-V does, traditional conversion tools need at least one hour to convert, reboot, post processing and create a new VM.  Conversion is done cold, so during the conversion the VM is not available. That amount of downtime can be unacceptable for hosters and enterprises often  having SLA’s with 15 minutes of service windows or less,

If downtime is no issue, many tools are available. 5nine Software for instance has a free V2V conversion tool. Easy Converter can be downloaded here.

Customers of NetApp are lucky. They are able to convert from VMware to Hyper-V (or the other way) in minutes by using free NetApp Powershell tooling. This feature is called NetApp Project Shift and is currently in Tech Preview.

By using  a cmdlet part of the Data ONTAP PowerShell Toolkit  a 40GB VMDK file is converted  to a VHDx  in about 5 seconds. Then using additional tooling a new Hyper-V VM is created, VMware tools are removed and within 5 minutes the conversion is done using a single reboot. Magic!

Shift  supports bare-metal shifting with P2V &  V2P and cloud shifting or V2V between Citrix XenServer, Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware vSphere. It only supports NetApp to NetApp conversions as it requires FlexClone which is a feature within Data ONTAP.

More info and a MUST SEE video in a blog written by Vaughn Stewart (Director of technical Marketing at NetAppTech Preview: Shift Cloud Platforms without Migrating Data

Microsoft extended NetApp Shift. It combines  scripts available in the Microsoft Migration Automation Toolkit (MAT) with the Shift technology. Microsoft calls it MAT (powered by Project Shift), a cold conversion technology that operates at warm conversion speed. It can convert most VMs with less than 5 minutes of downtime (and most of that it waiting for VMware tools removal).

MAT (powered by Project Shift) enables an automated conversion of VMware vSphere virtual machines to Hyper-V with less than 5 minutes downtime.

Project Shift NetApp MAT Microsoft

The Migration Automation Toolkit (MAT) is a collection of PowerShell scripts that will automate VM conversions. This version of MAT is powered by NetApp’s Project Shift (which are powershell cmdlets found in NetApp’s Data ONTAP PowerShell Toolkit version 3.0. Like the orginal MAT it is back ended by a SQL instance (SQL Express will work). MAT (powered by Project Shift) is able to convert VMs at incredible speeds. Most VMs are fully converted in under 5 mins, so that even customers with very small service windows can use the toolkit.

The MAT (powered by Project Shift) REQUIRES a NetApp storage device that is running ONTAP version 8.2 or later.

Prerequisites: ————–

  1. Data ONTAP PowerShell Toolkit version 3.0 from NetApp
  2. PowerCLI 5.1 from VMware (used to collect VMs)
  3. SQL Express or any other SQL Server Editions
  4. A Windows account with rights to execute MVMC locally
  5.  A Windows account with rights to schedule tasks on remote systems and run MVMC (if using remotes)
  6. A VMware account with admin rights to the ESX server or vCenter
  7. An account with local admin rights to the guest VM (if the above account does not)
  8. A NetApp admin account with rights to the controller

Hyper-V again moves closer to vSphere in Gartner Magic Quadrant of 2013

Gartner published end of June 2013 its annual Magic Quadrant for  x86 Server Virtualization Infrastructure. The publication provides an overview of the server virtualization market. Part of the report is a graphic known as the Magic Quadrant. The upper right box is the box vendors want to be listed on.

VMware is still leader in the x86 server virtualization market. They have the largest market share and are leading with technologies. However Microsoft is closing the gap rapidly and even offer features vSphere does not have. Each year Microsoft is positioned closer to rival VMware.

The graphic below shows the Magic Quadrant for 2011, 2012 and 2013. It is clear Microsoft has been consistently moving ‘up’ and to the ‘right’ in the Magic Quadrant graphic . See Microsoft’s comment on this development here.

Another update of another update improves cluster resiliency in Windows Server 2012

Microsoft made available another update of a fix which improves cluster resiliency. I lost count now but believe this is the fourth try of Microsoft to fix a number of issues which are storage related.

One of the readers of my blog applied this latest hotfix KB2848344 and wrote me:

I’ve applied this fix on 2 nodes in a two node HV failover cluster. (LAB based on iSCSI shared storage)
DPM2012SP1 with latest rollups is still not able to backup a single VM on this cluster.
DPM encountered a retryable VSS error…

KB2848344 is titled  Update improves cluster resiliency in Windows Server 2012 and was released June 13, 2013.

I blogged about previous storage issue and the Microsoft attempts to solve this here:
Microsoft releases 2nd bug fix to fix issues on CSV backup of Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V
here
Storage issues on Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V. Microsoft struggling to fix!
and here
Important update that improves cluster resiliency in Windows Server 2012 is available

I guess you can make your own conclusions on the reliability of the storage integration with Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V! Quite a few customers have difficulties to make a proper backup or not able to make a backup at all without the risk of crashing volumes. Not good at all!

For an overview of issues which are backup related see this thread on Microsoft.com

BTW: Microsoft also released a bugfix for Offloaded Data Transfer (ODX) issues described in KB2796995.

As stated by Microsoft in this KB:

This update replaces a previous resiliency improvements update that is described in KB 2838669. Additionally, the following issues that you experience are resolved.

 

This article introduces an update for cluster resiliency improvements in Windows Server 2012. After you install this update, the issues that are described in the following Microsoft Knowledge Base (KB) articles are resolved:

2801054

VSS_E_SNAPSHOT_SET_IN_PROGRESS error when you try to back up a virtual machine in Windows Server 2012

2796995

Offloaded Data Transfers fail on a computer that is running Windows 8 or Windows Server 2012

2813630

Virtual machine enters a paused state or a CSV volume goes offline when you try to create a backup of the virtual machine on a Windows Server 2012-based failover cluster

2824600

Virtual machine enters a paused state or goes offline when you try to create a backup of the virtual machine on a CSV volume in Windows Server 2012

2848727

“Move-SmbWitnessClient” PowerShell command fails in Windows Server 2012

2799728

Virtual machine enters a paused state or a CSV volume goes offline when you try to create a backup of the virtual machine on a Windows Server 2012-based failover cluster

Note This update replaces a previous resiliency improvements update that is described in KB 2838669.
Additionally, the following issues that you experience are resolved.

Issue 1

Assume that you have a Windows Server 2012-based failover cluster. A Cluster Shared Volume (CSV) is moved or is toggled between directed access and redirected access when the performance monitor is running. In this situation, the performance counters no longer function.

Issue 2

Consider the following scenario:

  • You have the Hyper-V server role installed on Windows Server 2012-based failover cluster nodes.
  • Virtual Hard Disk (VHD) files of the virtual machines are stored on a scale-out file share.
  • The cluster nodes are under heavy loads.

In this scenario, the cluster nodes may crash, and you may receive a Stop error message that resembles the following:

STOP: 0x000000C2 (parameter1, parameter2, parameter3, parameter4)

Capacity Planner for Hyper-V Replica

Microsoft released at May 22 a new tool named  ‘ Capacity Planner for Hyper-V Replica’
Hyper-V Replica allows administrators to replicate their virtual machines from a primary server/cluster to a replica server/cluster.
The Capacity Planner for Hyper-V Replica guides the IT administrator to design the server, storage and network infrastructure which is required to successfully deploy Hyper-V Replica.

Capacity Planner for Hyper-V Replica will create a test VM with a VHD file and will then start replication. Metrics on CPU consumption, WAN consumption and storage usage will be collected during the replication. A report will be presented giving the administrator insights in things like:

Estimated storage to store the initial copy
Additional storage required on the replica server when only the latest recovery point is preserved
Additional storage required per recovery point on the replica server when multiple recovery points are preserved
Average network bandwidth required
Additional space required on the primary storage
Estimated additional IOPS during initial replication
Estimated additional IOPS during delta replication
Estimated memory requirements on the primary and replica servers, by enabling replication
on the selected VMs
Estimated CPU impact on the primary and replica servers, after enabling replication on
the selected VMs.

 

Download and more information here. This tool is being offered ‘as is’ with no official Microsoft support.

Disaster Recovery of on-premise Hyper-V virtual machines using Windows Azure Recovery Services

Update April 11: This new service is not DRaaS. Customers still need two datacenters running Hyper-V and SCVMM 2012. Hyper-V Recovery Manager which runs in Azure does orchestration and testing!

Currently in limited Preview program  is a new service of Microsoft Windows Azure which enables Disaster Recovery Orchestration for Hyper-V. This post will give some details on this new service.

Windows Azure Hyper-V Recovery Manager helps you protect System Center Virtual Machine Manager private clouds in the event of service outage. You can build recovery orchestration plans using this feature and test your plans periodically to ensure high level of preparedness for unplanned downtime or a planned event like data center load balancing.

Introduction
Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V has a nice feature called Hyper-V Replica. It enables  replication of virtual machine disk files to another location for disaster recovery purposes. This feature is available at no additional cost, making DR a lot more cost effective compared to using third party tools. The feature is also very simple to setup and use.

One of the services currently in Limited Preview is part of ‘Azure Recovery Services’ and is named  Hyper-V Recovery Manager Vault. It can be enabled by selection of Cloud Services in the Azure Management portal. You cannot use it immediately. There is a queue at the moment.
