Rogue sysadmins the target of Microsoft's new 'Shielded VM' security

Anonymous South African Coward Bronze badge

Only one problem with this - it means that in the case of hardware failure (total or partial) on the host system, neccessitating a host OS reinstall, you'll be hard pressed to restore the host OS to just the right state to allow this shielded VM to run without borking itself at boot.

Nah, far too easier installing it as a vanilla VM and restoring it from a backup should the host bork totally....

Expect a bank to switch over to shielded VM's gleefully, only to sit with a big fat one after their host OS crashed and they cannot get any of their shielded VM's to run on the new, rebuilt host OS....
