- Documentation missing best practice information for Data Protection for Microsoft Hyper-V
The IBM Spectrum Protect for Virtual Environments: Data Protection for Microsoft Hyper-V 8.1.0 documentation includes topics entitled: Hyper-V backup support limitations and Determine system requirements, which both exclude best practice information.
The Hyper-V backup support limitations topic excludes the paragraph "To backup virtual machines that exist on shared CSV storage across multiple Data Protection for Microsoft Hyper-V hosts, it is best practice to run backups on one host at a time. In such a configuration, this best practice helps to avoid "snapshot in progress" errors.” This missing information will be added to this topic.
The Determine system requirements topic excludes the sentence "To ensure robustness and performance, it is also best practice to use a VSS hardware provider rather than a software provider.” This missing information will be added to this topic.
Documentation missing limitation for backup of VM disks greater than 2 TB (V8.1.4 and earlier versions)
The Hyper-V backup support limitations topic in V8.1.4 and earlier versions excludes the paragraph "You cannot back up VM disks that are greater than 2 TB. Do not include VM disks that are greater than 2 TB in VM backup operations."
