I have a client that is running exchange 2010 as a VM on hyper-v 2008. Exchange server has not been updated for almost 9 months now. Although exchange server and exchange is being backed up daily it scares me to have to install so many updates knowing that something could go wrong. Btw, all updates pertain to the OS and non to exchange.

To be on the safe side, I was thinking of creating a snapshot with hyper-v, install the updates, and then delete the snapshot (if all went well). Ive used this method before with other servers, but not with exchange. Do you think this is a good idea? What things should I know before taking a snapshot? If I need to revert back, does the database need to be restored?

Thanks,
Alex
