Upgrading from BE 16 to 20.2 Hyper-V Question

Hello,

I´m thinking about upgrading from BE 16 to 20.2, however, there is a note in the "Agent for Hyper-V note" section in the readme:

"A Windows 2016 guest virtual machine that runs on a Windows 2012 R2 Hyper-V host is backed up in the offline state."

As this scenario describes our current environment, how can I understand the meaning "offline state" ? Will the VM powered down or suspended in any way?

Thanks for info

The "Offline State" means, the VM will be "Suspended" till the snapshot processing of the VM is done. Once the snapshot is done, the Virtual Machine will be brought "Online".

In other words: It wouldn´t be wise to do the uprade now, as we would not be able to backup the 2016´s VMs without downtime?
