A number of years ago I looked at hyper v for virtualising at home.
I found it a pain in the butt compared with how I ran vmware server.
One of the main aspects was the file security and the need to export VHD and config files relating to a virtual machines.
Under VMware I know I can shutdown a machine (via script) and copy the single directory for a VM and it's all self contained. Starting up the copied VM - apart from a quick question if you move or copied it (which changes the mac address) it's pretty painless - and a pretty good backup solution.
Can this be done with hyper-v, or to you have to perform an export (scriptable?) I'm looking at rebuilding my "host" - and I was going to potentially look at hyper-v as a host rather than just windows + vmware workstation.
