Backup of Linux VM using DPM 2012 R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have few linux VMs hosted on server 2012 R2 hyper-v, which I backup using DPM 2012 R2. Backups are running fine but the problem is whenever DPM starts backing up the Linux VM, hyper-v saves that vm and restore it again in a few minutes.

    Saving a running VM disconnects applications that VM is serving. I have installed latest version of "Linux Integration Services" and now I can see that DPM does shows that VM is 'Online' which was 'offline' previously but still whenever I fire a backup on DPM it saves my VM and starts backup.

    Is it possible to backup Linux VM without save/restore process?
