Agent Backup Windows File Server Cluster

Post by MayrJ »

Hello,

we are planning a Windows File Server Cluster based on RDM for one of our customers.

does the Veeam Agent backup work when Microsoft Dedup is in use?

i know that VMware snapshot backup of Microsoft dedup volumes is not a problem as long as the proxy used has at least the same OS build and the dedup role installed

Best Regards

Hi Jürgen

Protecting NTFS dedup volumes with Veeam Agent is supported.
To be able to restore such volumes on a VBR server, you need to have a mount server running the same or later OS version of the protected windows machine and Dedup feature must be enabled on the mount server.

Best,
Fabian
