Building a virtual LAB that is prepared for snapshots

0

Clicking Here As a consultant and instructor I use my virtual labs every day for developing, testing and doing demos. My virtual lab has 2 Domain Controllers and and a member server for each role or version of a product that I need in my lab.

Or if I’m testing a beta product where I get get new builds, so I don’t need to configure all the pre-requirements over and over again.

additional hints If you don’t want the member servers (the snapshots) to be locked out, you need to configure Group Policy so that computer accounts have a maximum password age of 999 days. By default, computer accounts change their passwords automatically every 30 days. If you are saving computer images or snapshots and restoring them later, this setting ensures that the disk images or virtual snapshots will be restorable for up to 999 days.
