Need 2 Powershell Scripts - Virtual Machine Backup and Start Services
Have a Windows Server 2008 running HyperV.
Need a script that will be run automatically (via scheduled task) that will shut down each vm, copy the vhd to a network share or other folder, and then re-start each vm after the vhd is copied. The environment is simple enough that a copy of a stopped vhd is sufficient (does not need to export the vm).
In concert with this, some vm services do not start automatically as they should. Need powershell script that will run on each vm that specifies services to start, or confirms they start, after the vm reboots.
