SnapManager for Hyper-V - Distributed Application-consistent backup over SMB 3.0

Hi,

 

Before the upgrade to ONTAP 9 my Hyper-V Cluster was running distributed application-consistent snapshots over SMB 3.

 

After the upgrade my SnapDrive and SnapManager had to be re-installed/downgraded after a bad SD version. Now the option to run Distributed backups is gone in the configuration wizard and I found an old document saying that it wasn't supported but that was on Windows 2012, ONTAP 8 and SnapManager 2.0.

 

If it still isn't supported how come I could run it for over a year before the upgrade of ONTAP?

 

Is there a way to activate Distributed backups by editing registry or config files? The benefit of Hyper-V cluster kind of loses its point if I can't run distributed backups.

 

 

Best regards

 

Joakim

Hi,

 

To use this feature, select the Application-consistent backup type and select the Enable Distributed Backup check box. Refer Backup options in the link: https://library.netapp.com/ecmdocs/ECMP1518659/html/GUID-C0963B47-376D-4125-A26B-FA7A0F1CCB79.html

Yes, if it was there it would be easy. Smiley Happy But earlier in the line it says for CSV 2.0 (Cluster Shared Volumes) but I am running on SMB 3.0 Shares.
