Backing up a VM after restoring to a new host RRS feed

  • Question

  • Scenario - I'm backup up a Hyper-V VM on Host A, I restore the VM to Host B. How do I configure DPM to continue protecting the VM after it's been restored to Host B? Seems DPM will continue looking to Host A for the protected VM even after restoring it to Host B...Or maybe it will automatically start looking at Host B? I don't know, haven't tried yet...

  • Hi,

    Assuming Host A and Host B are separate standalone Hyper-V hosts:

    If you want to protect a restored Hyper-V virtual machine that was backed up on Host A and restored to Host B, you will have to add the restored virtual machine to the protection group.

    DPM doesn't add Hyper-V machines to the protection groups automatically.

    Best regards,
