1 Virtualizing your Datacenter with Windows Server 2012 R2 & System Center 2012 R2 Part 2 Hands-On Lab Step-by-Step Guide For the VMs the following credentials: Username: Contoso\Administrator Password: Passw0rd! Lab version: Last updated: November 6, 2013 Important: these VMs were built using evaluation software. To ensure that the labs continue to function after the evaluation period has expired, hosters will start the VMs from a saved state and so the VMs will not resync their time unless they are rebooted. Avoid rebooting any VMs during this lab.

14 9. Open the Virtual Machine Manager Console. If the Connect to Server window appear, ensure Use current Microsoft Windows session identity is selected, and click Connect. 10. Select the VMs and Services workspace, and then select CLUSTER Note that VM02 is being created with an identical configuration as VM01. Since both VMs are in the same availability set called Lab Availability Set they will be distributed across different hosts. 12. Select the Library workspace. 13. Expand Library Servers, and click on SCVMM01.contoso.com. 14. Right-click SCVMM01.contoso.com, and select Refresh. DeployVM.ps1 should appear in the Physical Library Objects details pane. 14

21 Lab 6: Virtual Machine Mobility Estimated time to complete Lab 6: 20 minutes Exercise 6.1: Configure Hosts for Migration Estimated time to complete: 5 minutes In this exercise System Center 2012 R2 Virtual Machine Manager will prepare the Hyper-V hosts to support virtual machine live migration, which moves running VMs between hosts with no downtime. This includes enabling the hosts for migrations, setting authentication protocols, and configuring the maximum numbers of migrations. Estimated time to complete: 5 minutes Perform the following on SCVMM01 1. Open the Virtual Machine Manager Console. If the Connect to Server window appear, ensure Use current Microsoft Windows session identity is selected, and click Connect. 2. Select the VMs and Services workspace. 3. Expand All Hosts CLUSTER1, and select HYPER-V Right-click HYPER-V01, and select Properties. 5. In the HYPER-V01.contoso.com Properties window, click the Migration Settings tab. 6.

22 7. Under Live migration settings, ensure that Turn on incoming and outgoing live migrations is enabled, and change the Maximum numbers of simultaneous live migrations value to Under Performance option, review the options, and ensure that Use compression is selected. 9. Under Authentication protocol, select Use Kerberos. 10. Under Incoming live migration settings, ensure the Use the following IP subnets is selected. In the list of IP subnets, select /32, and click Move up until this IP subnet is at the top of the list. This ensures this network is prioritized for Live Migration. Click OK. 11. Repeat steps 4 to 10 with HYPER-V02. 22

23 Exercise 6.2: Test a VM Migration In this exercise VMM will perform a migration. Since the Hyper-V hosts are already virtualized, it is not possible to start the VMs so they are not actually running live, however the steps that would be performed are identical. This lab migrates the memory of the VM from one host to another host. Estimated time to complete: 5 minutes Perform the following on SCVMM01 1. Open the Virtual Machine Manager Console. If the Connect to Server window appear, ensure Use current Microsoft Windows session identity is selected, and click Connect. 2. Select the VMs and Services workspace. 3.

The Migrate VM Wizard opens and automatically assess the target hosts available for migration. 23

24 6. Since the VM is currently on HYPER-V01, select HYPER-V02 from the list of hosts. Notice the warning about the Lab Availability Set, as VM03 resides on HYPER-V02 already. Click Next. 7. On the Summary page, ensure the settings match those in the image below, and then click Move. 8. The Jobs window opens. Observe the migration of the virtual machine from HYPER-V01 to HYPER-V02. Close the Jobs window. 9. Repeat step 4-8 on VM Return to the VMs and Services workspace and select HYPER-V02. Note that the VM which was migrated is now on this host. 24

25 Exercise 6.3: Test a Storage Migration In this exercise the VM will remain on the same host, but VMM will move the VM s storage components (virtual disk, configuration files, etc.) from one location to another. Storage Migration helps with SAN management and maintenance. Estimated time to complete: 5 minutes Perform the following on SCVMM01 1. Open the Virtual Machine Manager Console.

On the Select Path page, ensure that Automatically Place all VHDs with the configuration is selected, and then click Next. 8. On the Summary page, ensure the settings match those in the image below, and click Move. 9. The Jobs window opens. Observe the migration of the virtual machine storage. This process will complete relatively quickly because the size of the virtual disk is small. Close the Jobs window. 26

27 Exercise 6.4: Test a Shared Nothing Live Migration In this exercise a VM that running on a cluster will be live migrated to a standalone, including moving its related disks and files on an iscsi SAN to the host s locally attached storage. This is known as a Shared Nothing Live Migration, and enables IT admins to have complete flexibility for moving VMs around from location to location. The VM s memory state and storage are both moved with no interruption to the running virtual machine. Estimated time to complete: 5 minutes Perform the following on SCVMM01 1.

On the Summary page, ensure the settings match those of the screenshot below, and then click Finish. 14. The Jobs window opens and the Add virtual machine host job begins. This will take several moments to complete. The job will complete with a warning. This is expected. When the job completes, close the Jobs window. 15. Close the Virtual Machine Manager Console, then open the Virtual Machine Manager Console. If the Connect to Server window appear, ensure Use current Microsoft Windows session identity is selected, and click Connect. Since VMM is add itself under management, the management server needs to be refreshed. 16. Select the Fabric workspace. 17. Expand Servers and click on All Hosts. 18. Right-click SCVMM01 and select Properties. 29

30 19. In the SCVMM01.contoso.com Properties window, click the Storage tab. 20. Under Disk, select PHYSICALDRIVE1, which should be 40 GB. 21.

36 Exercise 7.2: Configure a Hyper-V Replica Broker In this exercise the Hyper-V Replica Broker will be configured. The Hyper-V Replica Broker is a clustered role that makes the Hyper-V Replica replication process highly-available, so that replication will always happen as long as the cluster is online. Replication can happen between clusters, between standalone hosts or between a cluster and a standalone host, however it cannot take place between nodes within a single cluster. Estimated time to complete: 5 minutes Perform the following on SCVMM01 Start Failover Cluster Manager.
