I have several Virtual Clients and Servers running a mix of Windows 10, Server 2016 and Server 2019.
I have been backing this up each day successfully for some time now, but am wondering if I have been backing them up correctly. They are all managed within a Hyper-V Cluster across 2 hosts.
In the actual backup job I have selected:
HyperVCluster.xxxxxx.local C:\ClusterStorage\Volume1\Virtual Machines\ followed by the name of each VM within its own folder, i.e. C:\ClusterStorage\Volume1\Virtual Machines\SERVER1\ (containing snapshot and virtual machines folder)
They are also listed under:
HyperVCluster.xxxxxx.local Microsoft Hyper-V HA Virtual Machine\ each as their own names, i.e. Microsoft Hyper-V HA Virtual Machine\SERVER1 (SERVER1.xxxxxx.local)
Should both be backed up like this? I keep thinking that I am backing each system up twice, which is pretty redundant.
Any advice appreciated.
Solved! Go to Solution.
To add more confusion and possibly making myself look totally noob,
On the Hyper-V Hosts, the ClusterStorage folder C:\ClusterStorage is also ticked i.e.
HYPERVHOST1.xxxxxxx.local C:\ClusterStorage\Volume1\Virtual Machines\ SERVER1
Should I deselect this?
