For our SQL DEV/QA environment our system-engineers did setup an Hyper-V enviroment - 3 hosts - 2 VM on each host (1 for DEV an 1 for QA)
Patching for the hosts is scheduled once a month but I noticed the VM's on these hosts are put in a saved mode and not shut down gracefully during the patching.
We are running multiple SQL Server Always On AG's accross these VM. Is it the best practice to shut the VM's down gracefully before rebooting the hosts or can SQL handle the saved state without problems?
Thanks for your help!
