VSS services

Post by WMB » Oct 17, 2011 2:55 pm

Hello all

I am really new to backing up VMware and new to VMware its self. I have been watching the videos on the Veeam website in particular the "VMware and Microsoft VSS: What you need to know". My question, is it recommended to enable the VSS Services on all my VM's which I am backing up with Veeam? the server are are fileservers and SQL applications

Hello,

No need to enable anything on the Windows Server side - default settings are fine. Just enable "application-aware image processing" while configuring VM backup jobs and that's it.

Thank you.

Hello

Thank you for your reply. The default of the VSS service is manual and it is not started, so all is OK like that? I did enable "application-aware image processing" in my backup Job

Yes, that's ok. Windows OS will start them automatically when necessary.
