Backup of a fileserver role.

Post by Ralph Wede »

I would like to make a backup of a filesserver role in made under Hyperv.
It is not avaible under hosts and VMs.
I can see it under host and Volumes as a drive with a letter.
Adding this drive to a backupjob results in a 0 byte backup
Also this is not the right way because this drive can be transfered to an other host.

Please review the system requirements for Hyper-V VM disk configuration to make sure the virtual disk hosting the volume in question meets them. Some disk types are not supported by hypervisor-level backups, and are skipped by the backup job. If the disk does meet system requirements, please open a support case for further troubleshooting. Thanks!
