Backing up Hyper-V virtual machines from the command line

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> --> Please see the rest on the...

What's in a name? Microsoft replaces Windows Server 8 with 2012

Do you really care what Microsoft names its new operating system? I don’t either. Yesterday, I heard from a source at the Microsoft Management Summit in Las Vegas that Microsoft now refers to Windows Server “8″ as Windows Server 2012.
