Cannot online backup some VM's RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

    I have a specific problem in DPM, which is responsible to take the backup of our Virtual Machines which are active on our clustered Hyper-V environment.

    The Hyper-V cluster is made of three hosts.

    I reinstalled all hosts to windows 2012 R2 (before they where on windows 2012) and changed also the clustername.

    Now when I start to configure the backup for the VM's again with DPM I have following problem, some machines, cannot be selected, like sv-mscb-rds02(see printscreen), some can I backup online (sv-mscb-prtg01) and some can only be backuped offline, like servers sv-mscb-pmm01 ans sv-mscb-rds01.

    I created a new protection group in DPM and the servers which I am talking about are not anymore active in another portection group.

    So if you have already had this problem or you can provide me some information, which may be interesting, I would appreciate your answer.

    Regards, Steven

  • Hello Steven,

    1. Make sure your Guest VM has the latest Integration Services running
    2. Make sure your Guest VM has a SCSI adapter configured
    3. Clear your DPM Cache and try again.

    Kind Regards,
