Hi all,

 

I have run into a bit of a problem I hope to get some help solving.

 

Is there any way I can get windows server to mount a vhdx file/virtual disk permantly? Right now they get dismounted everytime the server reboots.

 

Best regards and thanks in advanced.

Is there an OS or is it a data drive? What host OS is used?

Host or guest?

 

Should be able to add the disk here.

Unfortunately it is in a host system.

Is the storage local? Sounds like the storage may not be available when the VM starts. I'd check the Hyper-V event logs for related errors.
