Relatively large changes to Hyper-V backup where large changes are not necessarily expected. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a client that is backing up a file-server hyper-v vm using DPM 2010 and then backing up the resulting backup using another backup solution to take the backups offsite.   The changes that were made, were made to the file privileges at the root level of the file directory structure.  He allowed  settings to propagate through the file structure.  After the changes were made he discovered that there were a large amount of changes recorded in the offsite backup solution.   I believe that there is no issue with the offsite backup solution nor with DPM.  My question is this what sort of change would I expect to see if I was to do such a file privilege change on a hyper-v file server?

  • As long as the priviledges that were added and propagated through the file structure aren't removing any existing rights we shouldn't expect backups are recoveries to fail.  Please provide additional clarification and re-open the thread if further help is required.
