  • Backing up VHD files on Hyper-V 2008 (non clustered)

    I've talked to some people around my department and they have said you can back up VHD files on Hyper-V 2008 (non clustered) and back them up while the guest is live and running (with PowerShell scripts). Can anyone give me more information on this? What kind of back up? Is it an export? Thanks for...

  • Trying to connect two Hyper-V VMs through serial port

    I'm trying to connect two different Hyper-V VMs through a serial port. Since Hyper-V exposes the port as a "named pipe" to the host system / implements the sever end of the pipe, I need a named-pipe client to connect to both VMs.When I tried to write an application, all the data was lost. What...

  • Scripting control processes in Hyper-V VM

    I want to script a Hyper-V VM as part of a build process so that it’ll be able to launch processes specific command-lines. I’ve looked through this library, but all the operations seem to be at VM controller level instead of controlling the OS within the VM.

  • Path to config file in Hyper-V?

    Where does Hyper-V store the path to the config file for a given virtual machine? I thought it would be in the "rootvirtualization" name space, but it’s not there. What WMI object or field stores the path?

    This is the first time our company is using Hyper-V (on Windows 8). When we created a new virtual network switch, which was external, it somehow bridges the VMs network adapter with the WiFi. This is killing the WiFi's internet connection. What are we doing wrong?
