When running online backup of VM using HyperBack, a snapshot of VM is taken on hypervisor by enabling the following options.
– Static guest file system
Hyper-V 2012 R2 or earlier
– Standard check point
Hyper-V 2016 or later
– Operational check point
When VM is configured on ESXi or Hyper-V 2016 or later, online backup of VM is taken, ensuring consistency of data in VSS-savvy database installed on VM. Online backup of VM configured on Hyper-V 2012 R2 or earlier does not provide consistency of data in VSS-savvy database installed on VM.
When VSS-savvy database is installed on VM configured on Hyper-V 2012 R2 or earlier, go to HyperBack – [Advanced Setting] – [Scripting], implement and run the script before snapshots are taken, so that the database is placed into a paused state before a snapshot is taken.
