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

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!
