Server Backup

Posted on 2014-03-31

I have a STD2012 Server with a HyperV2008 Server (on the same box).
I want to keep the HyperV2008 Server backed up to an old server.
So if the new server falls over the backup (old server) takes its place.

Any suggestions on setting up the backup?

Just out of curiosity,why are you still using 08 as a hypervisor?
12 is way better and much more stable.

I am not sure, I guess time constraints.

Are you wanting the "backup" server to automatically take over?

If you are just looking for backups then you can use the builtin Windows Backup Utility to backup your server to a network location (i.e. your other server).

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Not to beat a dead horse,but it's not very hard to do.

The 2008 hyper v was considered not a very good product by many MVP's,and the backup and DR are way better in 12.

Its a 2012 Server with a 2008 Hyper V Server.
I just want to sync the AD to a old 2008 server?

So you have a virtualized instance of 2008?

I resolved the issue by setting up a 2nd server and running DCPromo, creating a backup DC
