Stuck "Waiting for machines to start up" when 2 versions of SQL in the lab
I'm looking to set up a lab for migrating from SQL 2008 R2 plus an associated application to SQL 2014, and I was noticing that if I put 2 SQL servers in the lab with their appropriate roles, the Install-Lab script gets hung at "Waiting for machines
to start up".
I'm using a local hyper-v instance on my Windows 10 workstation and everything seems to be good with the DC startup and domain configuration. Then when the worker turns to the SQL servers and starts up the VMs, I can see the VMs start in the HyperV manager,
but even 15 minutes later the Install-Lab script never acknowledges the VMs are started. If I go down to just one VM or use two or more VMs that are all the same version of SQL, the script seems to complete successfully. I'm happy to help troubleshoot and
will keep digging to see if I can figure out what's going on, but I figured that I would log it since and I can reproduce the issue on a test 2012 R2 server as well.
