Warm backup and restore scripts


I just posted two scripts from John Kelbley, a technical specialist at Microsoft. They are examples of scripts you can write to perform a warm backup of your virtual machines and restore them to a different instance of Virtual Server. You’ll find them in the new Scripts category (http://blogs.technet.com/megand/articles/category/9995.aspx).

    For the "MoveWarmUNC.VBS" – I’m writing this note to you off of the top of my head, so if I miss something don’t get too upset if you need to get this stuff working.

    I just rebuilt a version of demo based on this script after a hardware failure (I was using junk from my basement) and it took me a couple of hours, including the following:

    1) Install of Windows Server 2003 AD in 2003 Native Mode (required for constrained delegation)

    2 Virtual Server host systems (using Windows Server 2003 NO SERVICE PACK) in the same processor family (PIII boxes – an Evo N800c and an old BX440-based desktop)

    2) One box setup as a "file server" – host for the VPCs shared out Installed VS for "Constrained Delegation" (watch this on the install of VS!!!)

    3) Configured Constrained Delegation (as per the admin guide)

    4) Changed default AND search path for both VS system to use the UNC I shared out on the file server

    5) Added the VMs to the "remote" host (not the file server) to create config files that used the UNC paths

    6) Copied the script to the desktop of each box, renamed it to "Move VMs to <other system name>.vbs and changed the script to use the remote system name (line 9)

    7) Ran it all and it worked!

    If you use SP1-based systems, you may need to money with COM / DCOM security. Also if you use systems in a different processor family (like an Evo N800c and a newer Evo with a mobile processor or an AMD) the VMs will not resume properly.

    [quote]Depression and anxiety disorders are serious medical illnesses that affect around 50 million American adults.

    Everyone has times when they’re feeling down. For people with the medical condition called depression, feeling very sad or having no interest in activities can last for a long time. Sometimes this happens to people for no obvious reason, even when their lives are going well.

    Anxiety disorders can fill people’s lives with overwhelming anxiety symptoms and fear. Unlike the slight anxiety caused by a stressful event, like a business presentation or a first date, anxiety disorders are constant and can grow worse with time if not treated. Each anxiety disorder has its own specific symptoms, but what they all have in common is intense, irrational fear and dread.[/quote]

    I was very dissapointed, when my doctor told me that i will be fat!

    So i found some material here, and medications too:

    [b]Will I gain weight on Zoloft?[/b]

    Studies show that Zoloft is not associated with weight gain, so you shouldn’t gain weight because of Zoloft.
