How can I migrate my VM's from Host 1 to Host 2 and ensure that the VMs don't attempt to automatically migrate back to their preferred host?
Migration? It's definitely not automatic in the least.
Planned failover? There's a checkbox to uncheck if you don't want automatic reverse replication and the VM to automatically start up. Could that be what you meant?
Of course it is. In an actual cluster. Which involves System Center Configuraiton Manager (SCCM).
@DustinB3403 used the word cluster, but he does not have one.
Oh shit, I missed that it was about a cluster. I was thinking Hyper-V Manager, right-click, live migration. Totally spaced there.
Yeah, that was my point, it is not a cluster.
