Hyper-V Guest Quiescence

Hi,

Just as a quick question, If I backup a Hyper-V Windows VM with the Integration components installed, what will be the difference of behavior related to MS-SQL inside the VM when I backup WITH and WITHOUT Hyper-V Guest Quiescence enabled?

We are working with a customer having issues with his SQL VM throwing fits when I backup his VM with Hyper-V Guest Quiescence enabled. This backup job does not have guest processing enabled.

Without Hyper-V guest quiescence, Veeam B&R will produce a crash-consistent backup. I recommend to review this user guide section for better understanding of different transaction consistency options.

What kind of issues does your customer see?
