DPM 2012 + CSV v2. Single snapshot? RRS feed

  • Question

  • As I learned from many blogs, starting from Windows Server 2012, there is a single VSS snapshot created for backup multiple VMs located at the same CSV disk.

    For example, I have a Hyper-V 2012 R2 cluster with multiple CSV disks. I choose one of these CSVs to backup. I add half of VMs into one PG and another half into another PG. No other resources in these PGs. Schedules for both PGs are the same.

    In this case, how many snapshots will be created for that CSV? One, because both PGs start backup at the same time, or two, because DPM requests snapshot creation for each PG separately?
