Cluster Backup Question


I was wondering what the guidance is on backing up clustered VMs in terms of which Hyper-V host to select for the backup jobs.

Should you spread the jobs out evenly among the clustered hosts, or just put them under the Cluster object itself in backup exec?

Or does it not matter?

If you have the Backup Exec Agent for Windows on both nodes, then you should be able to see the virtual server created by the cluster. You can select the VM from there. That way it doesn't mater who owns the VM.
