How to Backup Hyper-V Guests
Article ID: 47 | Rating: Unrated | Last Updated: Wed, Aug 19, 2015 at 10:22 PM
Hyper-V guests can be backed up using Attix5 Pro Server Edition and the VSS plugin.
- Install the VSS plugin using the plugin installer (see the following FAQ for details)
- Expand the VSS Plug-in in the backup selection tree, then Other, and Microsoft Hyper-V VSS Writer.
- You can then select your virtual machine by right clicking the virtual machine names underneath and selecting Include.
When backing up Hyper-V guests, it is highly recommended to ensure that “Streaming Backup” is enabled under disk properties.
Hyper-V guest machines can be relatively large, and the “dump space” required for Staged mode can be considerable, so is not recommended.
