Do you snapshot Virtual Machines before big changes?

Last updated by Brady Stroud [SSW] about 1 month ago.See history

Snapshots are a very easy way to back up a system before a big change is made. They can also be easily restored if something goes wrong during the change.

  1. In the Hyper-V Manager , ensure the Virtual Machine has the state of Off
  2. Right click on the virtual machine you wish to snapshot and click Snapshot
  3. The snapshot should run very quickly and you will notice the snapshot in the Snapshots area of the **Hyper-V Manager
