Hyper-V Virtual Machine Backup Script, which saves the state of the VMs.

by Stan Czerno July 21, 2011 14:59 CST

This Script saves the state of each VMs first, takes a VSS Snapshot, restores each VMs, exposes the Snapshot and uses robocopy to copy the VMs.
This is meant for a Stand Alone Hyper-V Host with Direct Attached Storage and will not work on a Cluster.

Let me know what you think about the script and if you have a better way of doing this.
