How VM restores are affected if no SnapInfo snapshot is created in SMHV
- Last Updated:
- SnapManager for Hyper-V (SMHV) 2.1.4
- Microsoft Failover Cluster
If a job fails to backup one or more VMs a snapinfo snapshot is not created.
If a restore is required then this can still be done successfully, BUT the failed VM in the backup will not be restored.
A successful backup will show the snapinfo snapshot creation in the Job Report in
\installation_path\NetApp\SnapManager For Hyper-V\SnapManager For Hyper-V Reports\Reports\Backup\:

Adding SnapshotLocator Objects to SmCreateSnapInfoBackupResponse

From the failed backup, the backup registers but the snapinfo snapshot creation is skipped:
