Hi All,
I want to know the procedure on how to re-start a virtual machine for every "X" hours.
Please help me with the full procedure along with the script.
Thanks in advance.


Software/Hardware used:
Windows XP SP2

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You would need to use the same procedures that you would use to restart a physical machine every few hours.  The task scheduler within the guest OS would be the best bet.  Have the task scheduler run shutdown.exe and give shutdown.exe the needed parameters so that it’ll reboot the machine.

Normally there is no need to reboot a virtual machine ever, much less every few hours.

    I just reboot my virtual machines after MS updates, or if there was a specific issue - the same as every other machine.
