Protecting Hyper-V with DPM
Click on either Create protection group or Modify protection group if you
already have one created:
4. Expand the server running the Hyper-V role.
5. Expand HyperV and select the virtual machines you want to protect:
6. Click Next on the following five screens.
7. Click Update Group or Create Group to add Hyper-V to the protection
When it is done you will see a result of Success and your virtual machines will
now be protected.
One way to tell if DPM is using Online or Ofline backup is by looking at the
Protected Members in your protection group . If DPM is using the Online backup
method the Protection Member will be listed as a Child Partition Snapshot. This means that
the virtual machine is using VSS and it has integration services installed.
If the virtual machine in the Protected Member is showing Saved State it is a Legacy
Windows operating system or a non-Microsoft operating system such as Linux. Once again
these virtual machines will be paused and then a snapshot will be captured and
synched to DPM. DPM will then resume the virtual machine to its current state.
There is an example of this in the following screenshot:
