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.
I know this was some time ago...but was this fixed?
I'm having the same issue. On-demand backups give me the option to choose "Distributed Application Consistent Backup" However, when creating a backup policy to schedule backups, I do not have this option leaving me with snapshots for each HyperV hosts in the volume used for SMB3 Snapmanager HyperV version 2.1.4
