how to change parent location of a differencing vhd via powerShell hyper-v RRS feed

  • Question

  • following situation:

    Windows Server 2008 R2, Hyper-V: different VMs use the same BasicDisk

    The disc space of one vm was to low. So I took a copy of the dynamic basic disk, expand it and saved it to a new location. Now I have to change the parent location of the differencing disk - but I can't find any good way. In fact, I can export the vm to another host, import there the vm, and use the inspect disk method, then I go the way return. But there must be a better way, perhaps with powershell. Can someone help me!

    Thanks a lot!
