Re: VMWare and HyperV NBU Backup

I have moved this post to NetBackup forum as your query does not seem to be related to NetBackup Appliance.

If you are new to VMware and Hyper-V backups, I strongly suggest that you download the relevant manuals and at a minimum read through the 1st 2 chapters of the docs.

This will give you a good introduction and overview of how the agent backups work - including diagrams.

Re: VMWare and HyperV NBU Backup

A storage snapshot is done by the storage system on lun/volume, some times it can be integrate into the virtualization platform snapshot system.

For hyper-V this requires that the system has a VSS provider.

Look at the Replication Director and Snapshot Client manuals for supported setups for storage snapshots

The standard questions: Have you checked: 1) What has changed. 2) The manual 3) If there are any tech notes or VOX posts regarding the issue
