Hyper-V failed to enable replication for virtual machine ‘xxx’ : Cannot create a file when that file already exists. (0x800700B7). Virtual machine ID 27bxxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxx
Replication scenario :
Consider my primary server is A and replica server is B. Replication is running A to B. There are one VM replicating from A to B. I have tried to resume replication both the VMs but replication is not resumed. So first i have removed replication from A and From B for those two VMs. Then removed VM from B and respective folder of VM (folder name on ‘VM ID’).
I am getting this error while i am enabling the replication again as it was disturbed so i need to re-enable it. But getting upper error. I have removed the replication and deleted the VM folder from replica. still it is showing as above and not enabling the replication.
Find in all folders on the destination server for the virtual machine ID: “27bxxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxx”
I found one folder in :”Undolog Configuration” that can not delete , then I restart the “Hyper-V Virtual Machine Management Service” and can delete it.
