Do you snapshot Virtual Machines before big changes?
5/03/2020 10:23 AM by
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.
- In the Hyper-V Manager, ensure the Virtual Machine has the state of Off
- Right click on the virtual machine you wish to snapshot and click Snapshot
- The snapshot should run very quickly and you will notice the snapshot in the Snapshots area of the Hyper-V Manager
You will see the snapshots associated with a Virtual Machine when you click on them
