I use Hyper-V on windows 8.1 to set up test environments.
My checkpoint tree looks like this
Base +Test1 >Now +Test2 +Test3
Since these are test environments I normally don't want to keep changes when moving from one environment to another. i.e. I just
Apply the checkpoint I want to move to.
The confusion appears when I want to keep changes in one environment. Lets say my tree looks like this:
Base +Test1 >Now +Test2 +Changes +Test3
My questions are:
- How do I merge the
Test2? Do I just
- Lets say I don't need the
Test3environment anymore. How do I remove it? Will
Deletemerge it with
Currently I merge the changes like this but it seems too complicated:
Base +Test1 +Test2 +Changes >Now +Test3
Delete Checkpoint Subtreeon
Base >Now +Test1 +Test3
Create a new checkpoint and rename it
Base +Test2 >Now +Test1 +Test3
I always create and
Apply checkpoints when the VM is shut down.
Apply refers to the context menu choices.
