Backup Hyper-V host

Veeam Logoby Manny15 » Wed Apr 19, 2017 6:29 pm

Is it possible/recommended to backup a hyper-v host with Veeam Endpoint backup? The Hyper-V hosts run CSV and the guest VMs are already being backed up via Veeam B&R. I'm just concerned about the host itself.

Thanks!

Hi Manny,

Such approach is supported, so you can install VEB/VAW on top of Veeam B&R server.

Our two hosts are in an MS Cluster. Not sure if this is supported.... I see that it may not be according to this post:

veeam-agent-for-windows-f33/support-for-ms-cluster-t36800.html#p203451

Can you confirm?

Hi Manny,

Unfortunately, failover clusters are not supported. VAW/VEB is not ‘cluster aware’ solution.

Will this functionality be added in the future? Or maybe a different Veeam product that can backup Hyper-V cluster servers?

Thanks!

Last week during VeeamON we announced future support for Windows Failover Cluster within VAW.

Joe is correct, but just to clarify this is with VBR v10 and VAW 3.0 both are still under development.

Got it. Thanks for the clarification. When is VBR v10 and VAW 3.0 scheduled to be released?
