Live backups with Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V

Post by Algebro » 2014/10/14 15:26:59

Hello,

I apologize if this isn't the best forum for this question, but I've been searching everywhere for awhile and I can't seem to figure this out. I am deploying CentOS 7 as a guest VM in a windows hyper-v environment, and for some reason the host can only do offline backups of the instance rather than online like it should. If I do the server infrastructure installation, the live backups work correctly with no configuration.

Does anyone know if there is a package I need to install in the minimal installation to get this to work? All of the documentation I can find is for Centos 6.x, but I can't seem to find anything for 7.

Thanks for the help!

Just wanted to add, I was able to figure this out. If anyone has this same issue, they can install the hyper-v daemons suite:

yum install hyperv-daemons

Hopefully this helps someone!
