  • Windows Server Backup and Hyper-V

    Quick question about Windows Server Backup (WSB) and Hyper-V virtual guests:

    Is it possible to have WSB complete a full system backup on the Hyper-V host without interrupting (pausing) the network I/O on the Hyper-V guest machines?

    If so, what needs to be done to implement this?

    If not, what are alternatives?

    (I scheduled full backups on my Hyper-V host and the backup job has been causing certain server applications to error/hang due to interrupted network I/O).

    First post here!

        • That's what I've been doing for a few months without any negative consequences. VMs are w2k3 x86 x64 R2 and w2k8 R2 x64.

        If so, what needs to be done to implement this?
        • Nothing although you may need to re-register the VM writers if have any other backup software installed.

        If not, what are alternatives?

          Not a real big help right now but this may be worth remembering for the future.
