I would like to backup individual Hyper-V virtual machines. Is there any API for taking snapshot of VHD files. Can any one tell me any batch/powershell scripts to backup virtual machines lively.

I want to backup the virtual machines without stopping them. My biggest doubt is what is the consitancy of  the backup if Exchange server installed in virtual machines and some process running. Is there a way to take snapshot of the exchange server with the snapshot of the vhd files.

NOTE: Please don't suggest backup the exchange server in virtual machine and then backup vhd file. I dont want to do like this.  also plz dont suggest third party softwares

Thanks in advance.
