Automating backups of Server 2012 with Hyper V
Posted on 2014-03-24
I am about to jump into the world of Virtual environments. I have allot to learn.
I want to automate daily image backups on a new Windows 2012 Server - Standard Edition.
I might, in the near future (when I become more familiar with it), implement the Hyper V (VM'S) inherent in the new system. Microsoft allows you the ability to create two VM'S - hosted on the original 2012 Standard Server. Will 'Symantec System Recovery 2013 - Server Edition' backup closed/or opened Hyper V VM'S, as well as the host it resides on (Microsoft 2012 Standard Server)?
I guess my question is, do you backup the data within a VM while performing an image of the original host system?
I will also be attempting to run 'Symantec System Recovery 2013 - Desktop edition'. I run into the same problem. My client is running VM ware and Virtual desktop on a Windows 7 Pro system. Will this product be able to backup virtual machines?
