In 2008 HyperV R2 I can add a physical disk to a VM.
1) Are there any size limitations on that versus a regular VHD e.g. what is the max size of a regular VHD versus a physical disk VHD?
2) When I add the physical disk as a VHD and I run Windows 2008 R2 Server backup will it also backup the physical disk VHD just as it does regular VHDs? For example if I have 4 VM's on a host with 4 VHD's attached to them and I run Server 2008 R2 backup I will create a complete duplicate of the host that in theory I can restore to a different server if necessary. Does this still work if one of the VHD's attached to one of the VM's is 'physical disk'
I believe the other terminology for physical disk is pass-through
