Hyper-V virtual machine backup script…

Thursday, September 29th, 2011

Today my friend Marko Cepe sent me his VBS script that does great job to backup virtual machines that are running on Hyper-V.
This script does shut down virtual machine by sending shut down command to machine using integration services, then it waits virtual machine to enter stopped state, after that it does export of the machine and turns the machine back on.

Usage:

C:\SKRIPTE\> ExportVM.vbs VMName ExportDirectory

Example:

C:\SKRIPTE\> ExportVM.vbs TestVM X:\Backup\TestVM

Click, download and enjoy the script.

Comments appreciated…
