Veeam Backup & Replication provides support for the following versions of the Microsoft Hyper-V platform.
Depending on your Windows Server version, some additional hot fixes not included in the Windows Update must be installed. Please refer to KB1838 for more information.
Management Server (optional)
*You can back up VMs of Hyper-V clusters in rolling upgrade. However, Veeam Backup & Replication does not use the Resilient Changed Tracking mechanism in such scenario. To perform backup with RCT enabled, make sure your Microsoft Hyper-V environment meets the requirements.
It is recommended to complete the rolling upgrade within four weeks. For more information, see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/failover-clustering/cluster-operating-system-rolling-upgrade.
Hyper-V integration components (required for application-aware processing)
Supported File Systems
DRBD (Distributed Replicated Block Devices) are not supported.
HFS, HFS+ (volumes up to 2 TB)
The FLR appliance uses module ZFSonLinux version 0.6.3. For this reason, Veeam Backup & Replication supports only those versions of pools and features that are available in ZFSonLinux version 0.6.3.
You cannot restore pipes and other file system objects. File-level restore supports recovery of files and folders only.
The multi-OS wizard works not only with basic disks, but also Linux LVM (Logical Volume Manager) and ZFS pools. Encrypted LVM volumes are not supported.
VM Guest OS Files Exclusion
Veeam Backup & Replication supports both basic and dynamic disks. Volumes on the dynamic disks must not be split — spanned, striped and other types of split volumes are not supported.
Dynamic disks and FAT/FAT32 disks can be backed up only with disabled application-aware processing.
