Hello Acronis Masters,

We have 4 sites running with 4DC (intrasite). This runs AD replication (DFSR) to replicate the policy each sites with default of every 15mins. This AD running 24/7. Only shutdown during the maintenance schedule twice a year. Therefore, it can guarantee less downtime.

Question. Is it normal happen a save state from running state of your VM during the Acronis Backup runs?

 

Setup:

*Acronis Backup 12.5

*Virtual Host = Windows Server 2012

*VM (Active Directory) = Windows Server 20212

*4 DC

Hello Anthony!

I don't understand your question. Are you asking if it's an intended use case to save the state of a running VM? I.e. when you restore it's in the same running state?

If so, then no, you won't be able to restore them as if they were in hot standby. You'll still have to spin up the restored VM.
