hyper-v guest backup using native backup in host server

In the initial stage of the HYPER-V there has been lot of buzz about how to backup the HYPER-V  guest in the host server. the options has been vary from installing third party backup agent to the guest virtual pc’s individually and getting the backup or install the agent to the host server and get the backup.

If you’re a average Joe using the Windows backup software then Microsoft has a series of instructions how you can configure the system to backup the HYPER-V guest pc’s. The issue has been is playing around the windows registry and it seems to be too much hassle for some users, and there is a prone for mistakes.

Microsoft has adopt an option called “Fix-it” which basically provide a pre created script which runs on your server and will carry out the necessary changes. I’m happy to say they have give a script under the “Fix-it” category for this as well. You can read the entire kb article here and get the script download and apply to your system. I would say this saves lots of time for a beginner who is moving into HYPER-V environment in their production network.
