We backup our hyper-v virtual machine with BE 2010 R2. one of these virtual machine has muliple snapshot. now I wnat to restore this machine. I did restore the backup to an folder, now when open the folder see 1 vhd and 3 .avhd. I know that I have to merg the avhad. so I did follow these steps:
1. rename the most recent avhd to vhd.
2. In Hyper-V manager, select "Edit Disk..." from the "Actions" menu.
3.On the next screen browse to the Snapshot Differencing Disk file that was just renamed in step-1.
4. On the next screen select the Merge option and Next.
5. Select the "To Parent Virtual Hard Disk" option and Next.
After this was finished I was left with 1 vhd and 2 avhd. should I now again rename the new avhd that was created to a vhd and follow the above steps? and then when this is finish I have to again rename the new avhd (this would be the last one) and then follow the above steps untill I left with only one vhd and then create a new virtual machine with this new vhd. is this correct?
