Strange Creation Date on Hyper-V 2012 R2 VM

I have some VMΒ΄s on my new Windows 2012 R2 host that have a strange creation date on the properties.

The VMΒ΄s have been created on different times and it was a customer that noticed it.

quite fun as there was not computers or even Hyper-V invented in the 17 century or was it? πŸ˜‰

Here is my lab/demo VMM 2012 R2 virtual machine and as you can see it is created the 1 of january 1601

WOWAn

 

and here is the other virtual machine, a windows 8 template

I have not been able to reproduce it now with either PowerShell or via the GUI, If you have seen the same issue please comment the post πŸ™‚

Hello Niklas,

I have the same dates on all of my VMs created on a Windows 8.1 Hyper-V client. I believe this is a known bug. It happens after a reboot. In fact, if you start the VM, then stop the service (Hyper-V Virtual Machine Management service), the creation date will be correctly shown.

Seems to be an old bug that will never be fixed. Just restart the vmms service (Hyper-V Virtual Machine Management) to fix.
