The coding hell and the daily IT of Niklas Jumlin

April 21st, 2010

As far as I know, after some googling I couldn’t find any program that could take backups of Virtual Machines running on Hyper-V Core when the .VHD files were located on a Cluster Shared Storage.

If you read my previous post you can probably understand you aren’t able to install any advanced programs in the Core-version either because many required runtime files and libraries aren’t available.

Therefore I decided to write a PowerShell script that would export the machines to a network storage server.

I currently don’t have the required environment to develop or do any testing for this script. Therefore I cannot give you a customized script for your environment or needs.
Please also understand that this script is offered to you freely without any support. Feel free to make your own custom versions of it, while still mentioning me as author for the original script.
