Backup Windows Server Failover Cluster on vSAN

Post by vrm » Nov 11, 2019 10:46 am

Hi,

Windows Server Failover Cluster(WSFC) on vSAN 6.7u3 is now full supported. Snapshots are not supported for WSFC, see VMware KB https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/74786.
We have the following idea. We will exclude the cluster node vm's from the snapshot backup and install the Veeam Agent for Windows on the nodes. Is this working and supported?

Hi Vincent.

Great plan and a solid way to backup said cluster!
Check special Veeam Agent Configuration KB we have for such scenario!
