Any help or info would be great

Hi RJG,

Sure. You can install agent and perform backup of your windows server on a guest level.

Hi Dima P,

Thank you for your fast response I just wanted to check as I got a odd response from Veeam when I logged a ticket.

"Unfortunately, you won't be able to backup such machines with VAW."
"Unfortunately, requested scenario won't work, because of Citrix design(system volumes are not ensured with psychical disks in its VM's)"

Hi RJG,

While we are checking this functionality, can you please clarify your Citrix setup? Are you running Citrix XenServer or Citrix Desktop? If possible, please install VAW 2.0 BETA on top of Citrix Windows VM and run a backup job and share the results.

You can find fully functional beta version here.
