SMB 3.0 Shares for Hyper-V storage
Where Backup & Recovery options are not present on your N-sight RMM dashboard, this means you will now need to use Cove.
To start a 30-day free trial of Cove by clicking into the app switcher in at the top right of the N-sight RMM dashboard, and selecting Cove Data Protection (Cove).
You can backup and restore Hyper-V machines that have some or all of their virtual disks on an SMB 3.0 share.
Please ensure the following conditions are met before starting the backup for such a virtual machine.
- The Hyper-V host and the SMB3 server must belong to the same Active Directory domain
- The SMB3 server must have the File Server VSS Agent Service installed
- The network share on the SMB3 server must be created with the Applications profile (under Select Profile > select SMB Share Applications) - View the Technet Instructions if required
- The Hyper-V host (namely its Local System account) must have full access to the network share (the Permissions step of the installation wizard) - see this Technet article for detailed instructions
