Backing up VM's that have Storage Replica enabled

My first venture in the Hyper-V forum!

So we have a use case for using Storage Replica inside a VM. When you set up on esxi, you have to use scsi bus sharing for the storage spaces disks. This means we cant snap, so cant use Veeam to back it up.

Is this the same on Hyper-V, would a VM have the same limitation?

Thanks

Hi,

Since Storage Replica works via SMB you can use Veeam to backup the VM. The only limitiation is that you cannot backup or restore the destination volume while protected by Storage Replica, more details here. The same actually applies to ESXi based VMs, I'm not sure why would you need scsi bus sharing to setup Windows Storage Replica between VMs, could you elaborate on that please?

Thanks
