We stopped the server and copied off the VM hard drive and settings files to another location.

Our KMS server is set up on a virtual machine. We snapshot the machine
once it reached 25 systems to ensure we can have it up and running in a
short amount of time should something happen to the host.
Do you do anything to quiesce/sync the system, or are you relying on the
VM snapshot to be atomic enough to get you a cleanly restartable image?
