Hyper-V on 2008 R2 - could not find VMs - SOLVED

Jul 10, 2014 at 12:29 AM
Have used the tool on Hyper-V Server 2012 and works great. deployed it to an older Windows Server 2008 R2 machine. Attempts to backup individual machines would report "machineName" not found. attempt to backup all machines would start and complete the backup in some short time and not do any kind of backup.

finally thought to run the cmd shell with the "run as administrator" option.

started my script and it sprang to life.

Probably a goof on my part to not run as admin, but maybe it will save someone some time down the road.
