Day 15, the half-way point on my quest. Yup Bruce is still doing it! Tonight I’m studying Virtual Machine Live Migration, Storage Migration, and Simplified imports. This topic can be broken down it to many scenarios:
Because of the mobility here I am starting to consider, whenever possible placing server roles on a hyper-v box even if it is a single role on the box. This gives me the option to move the role to any other hyper-v box. Consider the possibilities.
When testing Live Migration and Storage Migration watch out for security, it might byte you, you will need to understand constrained delegation!

I have a question a bout live migration. I set up a system which has two cluster nodes and one share storage. I created a virtual server and migrated it. It happened that migration from one node to another, let say from A to B is very normal (around 30s), but the other way around is super slow (12 minutes) . My two nodes are identical. Any tip for troubleshooting?
