Hypervisor level backup & targeted host
Good afternoon all,
We currently have a situation wherein we have 2 "live" HyperV Hosts and 1 "Replica" Host.
All 3 Hosts have the HyperV agent installed.
We have been backing up with a plan created to capture the VM's on the Replica Host from a Hypervisor level.
Now, in the past we have seen the situation where if one Host is removed, the backup will automatically repoint at the identical VM on a seperate Host (I guess due to the WMI ID being the same on the VM).
My question is twofold:
1. Is there any way of forcing the backup plan to target a specific Host?
2. I have tried turning off the Acronis services on the Host I don't want to back up from and the Host has gone dark on the management portal - but I've lost the ability to manually trigger that backup now - will it automatically repoint at the backup runtime?
Many thanks for your help,
