Best Practices - SnapProtect for Microsoft Hyper-V

  • A separate initiator group must be used for the client, and proxy computers and LUNs should be added to both.
  • If the Virtual Server Agent is no longer required to run data protection operations, you can release the Virtual Server Agent license instead of uninstalling the agent. If the agent is uninstalled, you will not be able to:

    • Perform Live Browse.
    • Unmount snapshots mounted by any Virtual Server Agent.
  • It is recommended to configure all virtual machines from a single cluster shared volume to a common subclient. This can be performed manually or automatically using the Automatic Discovery feature. The cluster shared volumes should not be targeted to more than one subclient otherwise it may result in multiple hardware snaps created during a single backup.
