If you're talking about regular SQL Server VMs (not hosting vCenter Server's database), then all you need is just make sure you've enabled "Application-aware image processing", in this case all your backups will be transaction-consistent.VMNewbie wrote:I've read in a couple other posts that in order to have a transactionally consistent backup of the SQL database, then I should be backing up directly through the host.
Provided that you're backing up vCenter Server, then you should be following these inctructions: Backing up virtual center VM
However, if you have vCenter Server and its database on separate VMs, then I believe you will need to use that workaround in both cases.
