Veeam backing up a PA-VM on Hyper-V?

Hi Guys,

 

Was just wondering, does anyone know if Veeam can be used to backup (and restore, I guess) say a VM-100 running on Hyper-V? I'm not too familiar with Hyper-V or Veeam, and just wondering what the limitations here are.

 

Thanks!

Yes it can back up and restore.

VM100 is regular virtual machine.

Is it stand alone or connected to Panorama?

Hey Raido,

 

Thanks for your reply! It would be standalone, not connected to Panorama :)

Restore to new location might be problematic because new UUID, CPUID and licensing but I can test it out if you are interested.

@sfranchina

Veeam or any other snaphot backup its not supported by Palo Alto. (beside that it still works)

You only get a 100% consistent backup if the PA is shutdown when running the backup.
