Hyper-V can’t enable live migration

6 בAugust 2018

Last week I had Hyper-V project of my customers which purchased two new Hosts and we should have replaced them with HP hosts, during host configuration we couldn't enable live migration on a specific host and got the following error: Failed to modify service settings Faile to enable live migration The only way I found to fix it is by: Renaming C:\Windows\System32\GroupPolicy\Machine\Registry.pol to C:\Windows\System32\GroupPolicy\Machine\Registry.polx As soon as you've renamed that file, go back to "Live MIgration" settings and enable it again, you will notice that new "Registry.pol" will be created successfully.
