Post by collegeinstructor »

Hi Michael, VM memory is typically never included in backups or replicas (with any backup solution). What you should do to ensure that there is no data loss, is quiesce you application during hot backups. For Linux, you do this with VMware pre-freeze and post-thaw scripts.

For more information on this, see adjacent thread:
Progress database and VMware Quiescence
