Backup Linux VMs on an Hyper-V host

Veeam Logoby Billabong » Mon May 04, 2015 10:13 pm


is it neccessary to suspend a virtual linux machine to backup with veeam 8 B&R?
Or is it clever? The reason why i ask is: database consistence

The linux machine is a webserver, ftp, mail and mysql database server.

What are the steps (or the configuration parameters that are neccessary) to backup a linux virtual machine without corrupted database, etc?

Best Regards,

James, VMs that do not support VSS are suspended automatically, provided that default settings are used. However, the best idea would be to use pre-freeze/post-thaw scripts to make application-consistent backups of the Linux VM.
