DPM2016 & excluding VHDs on Hyper-V VM backups RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, just set up DPM2016 and I've been searching around forever without figuring this out:

    On previous version of DPM we could only select the entire VM (with all attached VHDs) or nothing. The only way to exclude VHDs on a Hyper-V VM backup was through registry "FilesNotToBackup"entries on each clusternode, which honestly was a LAME HACK in my opinion. Being able to select which drives you backup is a very basic feature, virtual server or not. 

    From what I can tell everything looks the same on DPM2016. I don't see any way to exclude VHDs on VM backups:

    1) Is this accurate or am I missing something?

    2) If this is still the same, the procedure is still as explained in this blog: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/23300.scdpm-2012-r2-troubleshooting-exception-virtual-disk-vhd-vhdx-of-vm-backup-hyper-v.aspx ??

    All input appreciated, thanks.
