Case #01671864
Update on this.
Hyper-v can have a maximum of 64 SCSI devices. 4 x controllers, each with 16 devices.
But Veeam can only include 60 of these.
Our fix was to change the SCSI Location in Hyper-v manager to something other than 7.
Maybe we should just never use location 7 in any VM or Veeam can allow exclusions for 0:7, 1:7, 2:7, 3:7

The problem of SCSI ID 7 missing from the Exclusion options has been fixed in v9. but SCSI IDs 16-31 are still missing. Hopefully, that will be corrected in a future v9 update.

Yes, this is planned to be fixed in one of the next updates.

[MERGED] Hyper-V 2012 R2 Gen2 disk exclusion

Veeam Logoby Baron164 » Mon May 16, 2016 1:31 pm

I have a Gen2 Server 2012 R2 VM running on a Hyper-V 2012 R2 Cluster that I'm trying to exclude the secondary disk for and just backup the OS drive. Being a Gen2 VM the disks are SCSI and not IDE. When I go into my backup job to exclude the second drive it lists the IDE channels and originally had * listed under SCSI Disks. I'm not sure what I need to enter under SCSI disks for the job to process the OS drive. I've tried 0:0 and 0 but both times when the job runs both drives are excluded.

I am have been backing up other VM's in this Cluster for a few years now successfully without issue so I'm still using Veeam Backup 7.

In v7 you had to input names of SCSI disks explicitly in order to exclude them.

So I would include the name of the vhdx that I want to backup? So for example I would put "DriveC.vhdx" in the list?

Actually, you need to specify disks that you DO want to backup there.
