Yes, it really does not matter at all if you don't use any of the Microsoft
networking as a server. My application is a telephony switch. I disconnect
the SMB protocol and I can make 100 copies of the same box. Once they are
up, if I need it I can simply change the name, and everything works. But I
don't need to share my disk.

Vzdump also works for KVM, so you can use this to here too.
