Last week I posted about how you can now use Windows Server Backup in Windows Server 2012 to backup virtual machines.  One of the first questions that people had was “how do I do this from the command-line?”  So – let me show you!

The tool you will want to use is “wbadmin.exe”

Backing up a virtual machine is fairly straight forward.  Your command will look like this:

wbadmin start backup –backupTarget:<location to backup to> –hyperv:<list of virtual machines to backup>
