Backup for ESLC Hyper-V Appliance (and Remote Admin Appliance as well)

Recommended Posts

We have installed both preconfigured appliances (ESLC and Remote Admin) for Hyper-V. We perform our backups with Altaro and got an error with both VMs because of the missing VSS support in the appliances. Altaro fortunately has a guide for installing CentOS in Hyper-V (which you can find here). According to this guide you need to install the hyper-v daemons

sudo yum install -y hyperv-daemons

 in CentOS to Support VSS in Hyper-V.

I was able to do this in the Remote Admin Appliance because I can access it via shell/root. After executing this installation I was able to perform a Altaro Backup without errors for this VM.

Unfortunately I can't access the ESLC-VM via shell because of the missing access data for root.

So I suggest to either provide the default root access data for the VM or to provide the package mentioned above via the update function within the appliance.

Hi Tommy,

as data in ESLC are not permanent and serves as a cache, it doesn't make any sense to backup them. What I'd advise you is to do a VMware snapshot after configuration and putting offline. 

Basically, data which were in cache 2 days ago are not valid now (due to updates in ESET product modules, which could change the cached results)...
