Hotfix: VM Virtual Fibre Channel Loses Access to LUN after Live Migration

A hotfix has been released today for Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V servers which are unable to access LUNs over a Synthetic Fibre Channel after a VM is live migrated to another host in the cluster.

This problem can occur if the following conditions are met:

  • You have two Windows Server 2012-based computers that have the Hyper-V role installed
  • You install a virtual machine on one of the Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V hosts
  • You set up a guest failover cluster, and then you make the virtual machine a cluster node
  • The virtual machine is configured to access LUNs over a Synthetic Fibre Channel
  • You try to perform live migration to move the virtual machine to another host.

This issue is caused by the inability of the Hyper-V host to restore the Synthetic Fibre Channel LUN on behalf of the virtual machine during live migration.

The problem applies to Windows Server 2012 Standard and Datacenter.
