Virtual Server backup

Hey there,

I have MS virtual server R2 x64 running on a windows server 2003 r2 x64 server and have 2 32bit windows servers running in it.

I want to backup these virtual server images, is there a way to schedule it to create snapshots or something to backup?

Thanks
Dave

the servers are just files, if you stop the servers you can then simply copy the files

NFR key for Veeam Agent for Linux

Veeam is happy to provide a free NFR license for one year.  It allows for the non‑production use and valid for five workstations and two servers. Veeam Agent for Linux is a simple backup tool for your Linux installations, both on‑premises and in the public cloud.

Gonna have to go with imaging software like Acronis True Image 9.1 Enterprise Server I believe...

I just managed to wipe mine out too! Seems the remote agent for Backup exec version 10.1 (hotfix 1) has a part called Advanced Open File Option which I think screwed mine up... EWven though I wasn't backing up these files I think it was doing something... sighhhh. Fixed that now in the process of evaluating imaging software!
