Learn about Windows PowerShell
Summary: Use Windows PowerShell to create a new virtual hard disk to use with Hyper-V.
How can I create a new virtual hard disk in Hyper-V?
Use the New-VHD cmdlet.
This will create a 60 GB dynamic disk VHDX file under C:\VHD\ called Mydrive.vhdx:
NEW-VHD -Dynamic C:\VHD\MyDrive.vhdx -SizeBytes 60GB
This will create a 5 GB fixed disk VHDX file under C:\VHD\ called FixedDisk.vhdx:
NEW-VHD -Fixed C:\VHD\FixedDisk.vhdx -SizeBytes 5GB
Tried this under Server 2012 and it didn't work. What am I missing?
"New-VHD" command does not work under 'Server Core' edition. Is there some way so that the "New-VHD" command should work with 'Server Core' of Windows Serve 2012/R2.
Just used on 2012 r2 core - worked perfectly.
it works perfectly "IF" you install Hyper-V Role otherwise you dont have those cmdlets ;)
