This is our customers configuration

Host machine - Server 2019

3 VMs running on it:

VM1 - Server 2019 and AD

VM2 - Server 2019 just file server

VM3 - Server 2019

 

Can I install the Server agent the AD agent and Hyper-V agent on just the HOST and the others will run agentless or do I have to have the Server 2019 agent installed on all 3 VMs

As for the VM1 running as the AD Role, does that VM have to have the AD agent?

 

Thanks for any assist

Hello Bill,

thank you for posting on Acronis forums!

Yes, you can backup all your VMs agentless with only Agent for Hyper-V installed on a host server. 

As for the VM1 running as the AD Role, does that VM have to have the AD agent?

It is not necessary. For this, you should enable the application-aware backup option https://www.acronis.com/en-us/support/documentation/AcronisCyberProtect_15/#application-aware-backup.html
