Is it possible to implement remove-vmdisk?

Aug 9, 2013 at 2:44 PM
I have some vm's with restricted network access and the only way to backup files from them automatically is to shutdown the vm, mount the vhd locally, copy the files, unmount the vhd, and start the vm. I would love to do this process without downtime by being able to simply remove-vmdisk one of the vm's virtual scsi vhds and add-vmdisk it back after the copy. In 2008 R2, it is possible to add/remove scsi disks from a vm without downtime.

Add-vmdisk is already implemented but I don't see remove-vmdisk. Has anyone implemented this missing function?

Thanks!
