THis is in primaries :)
I just run my w2k3 servers as simple file/dhcp/printer servers and all user data is just held on a single share (with sub-folders for each class/teacher) and I just backup this share to a USB drive (along with other shared folders like RMMaths or JuniorlLib and my own tech folder)
In quite a few cases, I've built the W2k3 server as a VM (on top of another real W2k3 server) with a view to one day doing some sort of complete backup of the VM and therefore being able to restore the VM on other hardware if needed and save quite a bit of time in not having to configure the main server again.
But I've never done this step and start getting a bit confused as to how to take and deal with "snapshots" (using VMServer 2 BTW).
So is there an easy method of automating backups of the VM?
Pointers please :)
