I'm trying to create a VM on Hyper-V 2012 R2 server and I'm getting this error:
The server encountered an error while creating VMNAME The Operation failed Failed to create external configuration store at "\\SMB\Server\Path": General access denied error. (0x80070005)
This is a brand new cluster, using SMB share to store VM disks and config files etc. All servers are Server 2012 R2 and all updates are done.
I was able to create a VM before (a few hours before, where no setting have been touched at all), but I'm getting that error for some reason I can't explain.
I tried gpupdate /force, logged out/in. Followed a few KB that might help with no success.
There is no access/permission problem for the account being used as the account can create/delete folders on the SMB share.
