Guest systems freeze up RRS feed

  • Question

  • We currently have an Exchange 2013 server running as a VM on Server 2012 host through Hyper-V.  We are using DPM 2012 SP1  to create backups using Hyper-V.  Whenever a backup job is run for the Exchange 2013 server the server hangs.  Outlook clients lose connection to the server and we are unable to RDP into the server.  We are unable to cancel the jobs in DPM.  The only way we have been able to resolve this is to restart the host server.  Has anyone else seen/experienced this?

  • Hi,

    Are you sure the Exchange 2013 guest is not going into a saved state on the Hyper-V host when a backup is initiated ?  Is this a standalone Windows server 2012 Hyper-V server or part of a cluster ?
