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.
