DPM 2012 R2 Backup of ISCSI drive inside VM Hyper-V RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have Vm that have ISCSI attached drive with ISCSI initiator. DPM does not see the drives when I do a online backup of the VM. 

    What is the way (if there is one) to take the ISCSI drives in the online backup?

    Or do I need to take the drive with the agent installed in the VM?

    Thank you,

    Nicolas Desgroseilliers,

  • Hi,

    That is correct, ISCSI / Vfc attached or Pass-through disks are not included in host level backups. You have install a DPM agent inside the guest and protecting the volumes seperatly.
