In what scenarios would you leave either of those unchecked, or checked for that matter?
Some context: I am backing up several VMs some that have SharePoint, or Exchange, or SQL Server... and some that just have AD or DNS (no apps or DB).
Thanks in advance!

Is it best practice to quiesce ALL VM's during a Veeam backup (either using VM Tools or VSS), regardless of the server role? I have a few small file servers running as VM's, and not sure if quiesceing is necessary, but I'm not against it either. I just wanted to know what the recommendation/best practice is.
