KB2927313–Hyper- VM Won’t Start Because The Security ID Structure Is invalid (0x80070539)

Microsoft posted a new support article for when a virtual machine cannot start – The security ID structure is invalid (0x80070539). This affects Hyper-V on WS2012, WS2012 R2, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1.

Symptoms

Starting an imported virtual machine under Hyper-V sometimes fails with an error message that states “The security ID structure is invalid (0x80070539)”.

Cause

This issue is caused when a virtual machine is moved from one environment to another, and Hyper-V cannot remove an invalid security ID from the virtual machine configuration as part of the import operation.

Resolution

A user can reset the state of security IDs in the virtual machine configuration by adding a new, valid user ID. To do this, you will need to:

  1. Open an administrative PowerShell command window
  2. Run: Grant-VMConnectAccess -VMName "Name of VM that is not starting" -UserName "Domain and username of the current user"

The virtual machine should now be able to start successfully.
