Hyper-V Program Manager
Here is something new in Windows Server 2012 that I have not seen much discussion of yet: Windows Server backup now has native support for Hyper-V:
What this means is that:
Is possible to backup (in the same way) of Hyper-V Server 2012 (core) remotely from Windows Server 2012?
It's a great feature that's prooving very useful to us in the SMB sector as it provides simpler restoration of a host and its guests.
Now if only they could solve the error you get when adding destination discs without all the others being plugged in :(
Cool! Do you know if/how this works with a Hyper-V cluster?
do you have the syntax for using wbadmin to perform virtual machine backup in Windows Server 2012
Hyper-v can mirror a VHDX . Can we backup the original? And the mirror, can we backup the mirror on the remote location?
During today's VSS snapshot creation I got a message:
COM call "lvssObject4->GetRootAndLogicalPrefixPaths" failed.
Thanks for all the questions!
I have just posted how to do this from the command-line with WBAdmin: blogs.msdn.com/.../backing-up-hyper-v-virtual-machines-from-the-command-line.aspx
I will try and do posts about core, cluster, replica and backup shortly.
What if the Hyper-V host dies? Can I install Hyper-V on another host and restore this VM with all of its settings?
On the Hyper-V host must I include the drive with the VHD files? Or needn't I because Windows Server Backup is making backup automaticly? Or is Server Backup just saving the meta Information of the Virtual Machines like the export function?
I think it doesn't support VMs hosted on CSVs
Upgraded to 2012 R2 and 90% of all the machines only do a offline backup after inplace upgrade :/
Same for me, after upgrade to R2 this great feature is gone for good :(
