Use Set-VMDisk to attach dvd drive error

Nov 18, 2009 at 12:42 AM

Hi, I have installed the pshyperv in my HyperV Server 2008 r2. And I log in as administrator.

When I tried to use SetVMDisk to attach the host dvd drive in my vm "abc", I got the following errors:

PS C:\Users\Administrator> Set-VMDisk abc 1 1 (Get-WmiObject -Query "Select * Fr
om win32_cdromdrive Where ID='D:' " ).deviceID

Can anyone help?

Failed to add Hard Disk Image to abc,

Is the giveaway. I'll double check for a bug in set-vmdisk but in the meantime can you check that the drive is a virtual DVD drive not a virtual hard disk.
