How to protect fault tolerant VMware virtual machines
How to protect fault tolerant VMware virtual machines.
VMware cannot create snapshots of fault tolerant virtual machines. Fault tolerant VMs cannot create snapshots, so agentless backups are not supported.
Because of this VMware limitation, you must use the Unitrends agent to protect fault tolerant VMs.
To protect fault tolerant VMware VMs, you must perform these steps:
- Install the Unitrends agent (see the latest agent releases and the Unitrends Administrators Guide for more information.)
- Create a backup job for agent-based assets (see the Creating backup jobs for more information.)
See the following VMware article for considerations around working with fault tolerant VMs:
