VMs in Hyper-V in Windows Server 2012 when power loss occurs
Posted on 2012-09-16
I have set up in a server box: Windows Server 2012 as Hyper-V host and three VMs with Windows 2008R2, SBS2011 and Windwos 2012 operating systems.
Without knowing that I had to purchase a special APC UPS product to shutdown the VMs within Hyper-V host in case of power failure, I bought a APC Smart-UPS SC620 Battery Backup.
If I get make this APC device gracefully shutdown the host (W2012), but not shutting down live VMs properly, what happens to VMs and its intergrity? Will this corrupt VMs? If it will corrupt the VMs or has a strong possibility of corrupting VMs, then I need to get the right APC UPS product.
