SMHV with two node cluster

Hello everybody,

I have two node HyperV R2 Cluster (using CSV), and try to backup my vm on each node.

Storage is FAS2020A with 12x600, with one LUN called HyperV with store VM.

So, my backup server is SRV-HV4, which is one of two node, run SMHV and SnpaDrive.

This node have two VM no critical running on it...

So below repartition of my VM :

SRV-HV1 : srv-imp

SRV-HV4 : srv-anl1

Owner of volume is SRV-HV1.

So when i backup my dataset called no-critical-vm, Vm called srv-imp backup successfully, but Vm called srv-anl1 doesn't backup !

On srv-anl1 i have this message : "SnapManager for Hyper-V is not licensed on the host or in the Storage System, backup is aborted. Failed to completed"

I think i have this error because SRV-HV4 is not the owner of the shared volume...

so have you an idea to backup my two VM successfully ??

Thanks a lot !

Re: SMHV with two node cluster

This is a known issue with SnapDrive for Windows and is already fixed in the product!.

Will let you know when the SnapDrive patch for this fix will be released.

Thanks,

Re: SMHV with two node cluster

Until the SnapDrive patch is release, you may move both the VMs to the CSV owner node to make your SMHV backup successfull.

SMHV with two node cluster

Hi,

SDW version running on my two hyper-v nodes is 6.3.0.4813 (6.3P2).

I have check my licence key, and it's ok.

SMHV with two node cluster

So ok. I have rebooted my two node and error disappear. Strange.

But now when i try to backup my virtual machine, i have an VSS Requestor Error.

Error detected in snapshot provider.

Have an idea ?

Completely uninstall SDW and delete the installation directory, reinstall.
