Re: HyperV backup

Hi,

 

Some solutions need to have an agent installed on the smb server. Also Microsoft solution DPM is not able to back-up servers on Nutanix Hyper-V using checkpoints (snapshots) of the virtual servers.

 

By then, you have have to install an agent inside the VM for data protection.

 

I thnk Commvault is able to back-up Hyper-V virtual machines residing on Nutanix, using checkpoints.
