SnapManager for Hyper-V

Configure SnapInfo directory settings


You must configure the SnapInfo settings for a host before you can add the virtual machine resources within that host to a dataset. If the SnapInfo settings are not configured when a Hyper-V host is added to SnapManager for Hyper-V, you can configure those settings later, using the Configuration wizard or the SnapInfo settings action.

You can also change the SnapInfo settings after the host has been added to SnapManager for Hyper-V. However, if you change the SnapInfo settings, you must manually move all files to the new location; SnapManager for Hyper-V does not update them automatically. If you do not move the files, you cannot restore from or manage the backup copy, and SnapManager for Hyper-V does not list the backup copy.

Starting with SnapManager for Hyper-V, the SnapInfo path can reside on Cluster Shared Volumes (CSV) and it can also reside on SMB shares for Windows Server 2012.
