Microsoft Hyper-V Question

This is not a hyper-v problem, just a question. I've used hyper-v on a 2008r2 server when studying. I  can do some of the basic things like creating the virtual hard disks and machines. I do not get to practice with it very much. What I would like to do is practice with it more and do more complex configurations and setups. Learning in school you only get the basics. Is there any site or book that I could get that has some sort of lab work where you set up different configurations to practice with?


Thanks,
Mike

The best way to learn is to play around with it.  Can you get your hands on a Windows 2008 x64?  Or you would need something like this? http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=39284

I can get access to a computer running 2008r2. I'm not sure if the link you provided is what I was looking for, but looks like something I would be. I guess in the real world you would have a plan and then you would build to meet the plan. The problem is I don't have a plan and I don't really know the different scenarios that would dictate the design. I can create VHD and virtual machines but don't know much about snapshots, backing up virtual machines, etc. I'm looking for material that would provide that type of information, like a lab manual. Something more than basic. I have old Lab simulators for 2003 server stuff that you just follow what it is asking. Is there anything out there like that? I have been to Tech Net's site or maybe it was Microsoft and they had practice stuff but it ran so slow.


Thanks,
Mike

Not sure where you can go learn.

Well snapshots are like taking a backup at a point in time.  Like taking a picture (snapshot) of the state the computer is in.  So lets say you want to upgrade an application.  You can take a snapshot of the computer and do your upgrade.  Lets say something happens during the upgrade and it doesnt go well.  You can revert to the snapshot that you took before the upgrade.  One thing to remember with snapshots is you need to merge the snapshots before you try moving them Otherwise you will only move the VHD that doesn't have the latest info.
