DPM and Hyper-V CSV Volumes RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does anyone know what would happen if DPM tried to backup a Virtual Machine on a Hyper-V server CSV volume if the CSV volume was already in a redirected state.

  • A definitive answer would depend on why the virtual machine was already in a redirected state.  A VM can be backed up when a CSV is in redirected access mode.  If the machine is in the redirected state because another backup is in progress then you would likely get the error below.


    Type: Recovery point
    Status: Failed
