Post by spzsoft » Mar 29, 2015 9:52 am

Hi,
I ave a hyper-v 2012R2 cluster with a lot of VM and with a cluster file server role with a lo of shared service. I am trying Veeam suite but i do not understand if is posible, and as, create a job backup for file server cluster role.
I added the service as Windows server and as SMB3 server, but when create a backup job these is not available.
Is posible with veeam rum a backup for file server cluster role ?
Greetings, Basilio

Hi Basilio,

Only VMs can be backed up, not roles.

Thanks!

just a comment
I undestand the choise not to backup physical server, but not to backup the cluster role is currentely a great limitation ?. In my case i need to use another product to supplement the lack.
Greatings, Basilio

Thank you for your comment. Just out of curiosity - will this allow you to restore cluster role to any other failover cluster, no matter what hardware it will use? Never dealt with this backup/restore process.

My goal is to backup data file on the share of the file server cluster role with their acl. What can happen that you retrieve a single file or folder. I am trying some backup software for backup hyper-v cluster, veeam is the second that I'am trying. I have not needed to restore in production but if it were to happen I would not find me unprepared

It seems like you need a guest OS image backup if you want to retrieve data files and acl. lists. Thanks for sharing your use case.
