Linux backup in offline mode RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello.

    I have Hyper-v server 2012 r2 with two vm Centos 6.8(linux) servers and one vm windows server 2012 r2

    I configure Windows backup for this VMs.

    In the beginning, everything was fine. All VMs backed up in online mode.

    After unknown events, vms with Centos (linux) started backup inoffline mode.

    In which logs to look for an answer?

    How to fix it?

  • Hi Bogdan,

    This might come as a late reply, but can you please check that you have the LIS VSS daemon running on those VMs?

    The name of the daemon would be either hypervvssd or hv_vss_daemon, and that must be running in order for the host to be able to communicate with the VM for an online backup.
