CloudPoint Admin guide query

Level 3

The CloudPoint Admin guide states the following...

CloudPoint does not support disk-based protection for applications that store data on virtual disks or storage spaces that are created from a storage pool. While taking snapshots of such applications, the disk-based option is not available.

Our NBU servers in Azure have MSDP pools to store backups that are built using 16 locally attached virtual drives configured in a Microsoft storage pool. Does the above mean we would be unable to snapshot these virtual machines?


Level 3

yes - that's correct. We do not support disk snapshots for these, but you can do a host level snapshots for such VMs.

Thanks very much for your reply, we'll look into host level snapshots.
