- You create a virtual machine that is running on Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V.
- You manually configure a page file on a non-system drive, which is a virtual hard disk (VHD) attached to emulated SCSI adapter.
- You restart the virtual machine.
On Hyper-V Generation 2 virtual machines, where only SCSI adapters are supported, creating a paging file on any volume will be successful. Generation 2 virtual machines are available on Hyper-V starting with Windows Server 2012 R2.
Note: For a host running Windows Server 2012 R2, you can create and manage two types of virtual machines, including the newer type supported in Hyper-V in Windows Server 2012 R2, called “generation 2 virtual machines.” Before generation 2 virtual machines existed, virtual machines were all of one type, which are now referred to as “generation 1 virtual machines.”
