I just saw an update to KB2855336 (the update rollup) was updated with additional text:

If you have a Windows Server 2012-based Hyper-V cluster that uses NIC Teaming with virtual LAN (VLAN), and you install this update rollup before July 12, 2013, you may receive an "0x000000D1" Stop error when you perform a live migration of a virtual machine. For more information about this issue, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: KB2866029 "0x000000D1" Stop error when you perform a live migration of a virtual machine on a Windows Server 2012-based cluster.

Over on KB2866029 we can see:

Symptoms

Consider the following scenario:

  • You have a Windows Server 2012-based Hyper-V cluster that uses NIC Teaming with virtual LAN (VLAN). 
  • You perform a live migration of a virtual machine.
  • You perform a live migration of the virtual machine back to the original host.

In this scenario, the host computer crashes. Additionally, you receive the following Stop error message:

STOP: 0x000000D1 (parameter1, parameter2, parameter3, parameter4)

Notes

  • This issue occurs after you install update rollup KB2855336

     

  • This Stop error describes an IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL issue.

The fix is to install the reoffered update rollup KB2855336, available through Windows Update.

My advice:

  • If your hosts are broken now because you installed the July update rollup then reinstall the new update rollup.
  • If you have not deployed the July update rollup then deny it, give it a couple of weeks, and then plan an install if there are no more reported issues.

This is a mess.

  1. Thank goodness I just read this, my cluster started bouncing at 3 am in the middle of the night 2 days ago and I have been working on it all morning – recreating my NIC Teams, Virtual Switches, checking drivers – only to see this is the problem! Thanks so much for your blog, I read it faithfully each day!
