  • Question


    Hi support,


    I do have a  Microsoft Virtual server 2005 R2 environment  . Following are  my queries realting to that


    1. I need to take the backup of one of the VM from the host . which all files should i consider while backing it up .  is it *.vhd  or * .vmc or both ??
    2. Is it  a good practice to back up a VM while the  VM's are running?? should i need to shutdown the  client VM to take a back up it ? if not   is it  *.vhd  file back up is  ok?
    3. Any way to start  and stop  the virtual servers  programatically ?  if it is there , could  you send me the sample code for that ..
