I'm looking for some advice here, I have a Windows Server 2008 DC running with a member server VM running on Hyper-V. Due to some updates I need to reboot the host server. I'd like to schedule it to reboot at night so that it does not interfere with my day to day operations. My plan was, using the task scheduler to run shutdown.exe /r. As I have this member server running on the host what considerations should I take before doing this. I do have the VM set to automatically restart when the server starts. Should I schedule the VM to fully shut down first and the reboot?
Thanks for your thoughts and opinions.
