Does DPM 2012 support backup of SQL cluster guest VMs over Hyper-V 2012 R2 ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I read documentation of DPM and I confused about whether DPM 2012R2 support of backing up SQL server cluster of guest VMs. 

    Here It is saying

    "DPM doesn’t support the protection of SQL Server database hosted on cluster-shared volumes (CSVs)"

    On the other hand here it is saying

    Clusters—DPM can protect data in the following clustered applications:

    • File servers
    • SQL Server

    Any Idea?

  • Yes I tested and it is working fine. DPM is clusteraware.
