Hyper-V Live Migration – Fail!

It seems that Microsoft have a knack of demoing products to the public that “don’t do what they are supposed to” -  and it happened again.

When?: Friday, March 20, 2009 8:00 PM Pacific Time (US & Canada)

Where?: TechNet Webcast: Road Map for the Future of Virtualization (Level 300)

To see what happened you will have to register to see the recording – and move over to minute 38:00 to see exactly what happened.

To save you the trouble of having to go through the registration – I recorded the juicy parts – pausing only so do some time travelling – no editing was done on my part (forgive the audio quality though).

In short – Live Migration did not work.

Short note to myself – during a demo – check that what you want to do actually works before showing it to hundreds or thousands of people.
Microsoft – You should do the same
