DPM 2010 - Backup CSV's - EMC Hardware Provider RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi guys

    I am testing backups for Hyper-V  (standalone & clustered (CSV)) with DPM 2010....

    Stand alone Host backups are working fine.

    CSV are a pain in the neck (due to redirected access).

    I know i need hardware VSS provider.

    Can someone help me with a right EMC Hardware VSS provider and implementation for CSV's.

    The VHD's are currently on CX3-40.

    We will be migrating them to NS-480.

    Please Help.

  • Hi ,

    The current list of tested vss hardware providers can be located here:

    For those SAN's not listed does not mean they will not work, but have not been tested.  Please contact the SAN vendor for other models to get the correct provider.  The hardware provider must support Auto-Recovery snapshots in order to work with DPM backups.  Perhaps someone else in the forum is familiar with your SAN model number and the correct VSS provider to install.
