Acronis integration with Acropolis, how must I proceed?

Hello,

First-timer here, I don't know if I'm posting on the right place, I'm sorry if I'm not...

I have Acronis 12.5 Backup installed on a Windows Server 2019 Essentials 64 bits (that's installed bare-metal on a Lenovo SystemX 3650 M5). Attached to it, there's an IBM TS4300.

I'm trying to figure how to backup the VMs running on my AOS 5.10.1 in the tape drivers inside the TS4300. I know I can install Acronis Agents on my Windows VMs, but I don't know if that's the answer for my question.

And, if a disaster happens and I need to restore the Acropolis VMs from the tapes, how can I do it?

Sorry if my questions seem too basic, but I'm googling for the desired infos all day long with no success up to now, so I'm asking for help here.

Best regards,

Hi @diogo_oliveira

Looks like Acronis do not support yet agent-less backup of AHV VMs based on that comment from Acronis forum: https://forum.acronis.com/comment/485356#comment-485356

So, based on that I believe that the only option is to perform agent-based backup of your Linux and Windows VMs running on AHV.

Thanks, RichardsonPorto. I forgot to mention that your answer resolved my problem. All backups are going very well, recovery included.

Have a nice day.
