Restarting and Resetting a MED-V Workspace

Updated: March 10, 2011

Applies To: Microsoft Enterprise Desktop Virtualization 2.0

During troubleshooting, you may sometimes find it necessary to restart or reset the MED-V workspace. Restarting the MED-V workspace is basically the same as restarting a physical computer. Resetting the MED-V workspace reruns first time setup and deletes all data that is stored in the virtual machine. Because all stored data is deleted, you typically should only reset the MED-V workspace to resolve the most serious troubleshooting issues, or to restore a previously working MED-V workspace back to a working state.

For information about how to open the MED-V Administration Toolkit, see Troubleshooting MED-V by Using the Administration Toolkit.

Restarting a MED-V Workspace

  1. On the MED-V Administration Toolkit window, click Restart MED-V Workspace . A dialog window opens in which you must confirm that you want to restart the MED-V workspace.

  2. Click Restart .

    Any published applications that are running or redirected web sites that are open will be closed when the MED-V workspace restarts.

Resetting a MED-V Workspace

  1. On the MED-V Administration Toolkit window, click Reset MED-V Workspace . A dialog window opens in which you must confirm that you want to reset the MED-V workspace.

    WarningWarning
    Resetting the MED-V workspace causes first time setup to run again, and thus reloads the original virtual hard disk. All data that is stored in the MED-V workspace since first time setup was originally run will be deleted.

  2. Click Reset .

    Any published applications that are running or redirected web sites that are open will be closed when the MED-V workspace resets.
