Windows Server 2008 R2 HypverV - pass-through disks and RAID and backup

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I have a pass-through 2 + TB passthrough/physical disk attached to a 2008 R2 HyperV VM.  

1) Can I RAID this just like I would a real physical disk

2) I am under the impression that I can't backup a passthrough/physical disk via server 2008 backup of the host and have to do it within the VM.  Is that correct? I would really like to have only backup for the host and all the VM's running on the host.
