Hi All,

Parallel processing are enabled and finally we find out this issue are cause by antivirus installed in Hyper-V host recently.
Antivirus live scan cause Hyper-V host take very long time to create snapshot end out all backup are queuing.
We have to disable antivirus live scan in all Hyper-V host as temporary solution.

Anyone know which VEEAM folder/file should exclude from antivirus live scan in Hyper-V host because VEEAM KB ( does not mention it. Or it same as Guess OS and Backup Proxies exclusion?

I'd check the following folders, as those are typical place where our components are stored:

Code: Select all
C:\Program Files(x86)\Veeam

For Hyper-V hosts generally it's not recommended to have antivirus but here's the list of exclusions from Microsoft. Basically exclude any directory that has VM files in it. C:\ClusterStorage would be most important for a cluster with CSVs. ... er-v-hosts
