Hyper V Backup Via DPM on Server 2012 R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I'm having an issue when trying to backup to tape a Hyper-V guest VM residing on a Server 2012 R2 host by using DPM 2010 running on a Windows Server 2012( not R2) host. I am able to install the agent on the Hyper-V host server but when trying to add it to a protection group DPM displays "Offline\Hyper-V Name." When the backup runs it fails and gives no specifics. As far as I can tell, no event errors are created on the Hyper-V server or either of the host servers. The SCSI controller is set up in the guest VM and the Backup volume checkpoint is enabled.

    If I install an agent on the guest VM itself instead of on the host server I can backup with no issues.

    Does anyone have any idea why DPM reads the Hyper-V as "Offline\Hyper-V Name" or why I can not backup from the DPM agent installed on the host server?

    We have both standard and enterprise DPM licenses available.

    Any help is appreciated!
