Hello experts

Im looking for some advice or a quick explanation about using backupexec 2012 to backup vm's as im used to using backupexec 2010. Basically im curious whether its considered best practice to select the hyperv node on the physical server and then select the servers you want to backup, or should you backup each vm itself individually ? The reason im asking mainly is that my incremental backups dont seem to be very incremental, when backing up the physical server and selecting the hyperv node its seems to be taking the whole vhd maybe assuming the vhd file itself has changed. How are other people doing backups of vms with backupexec 2012 ?  Any help is greatly appreciated
