I am running EMC Networker 9.2 and am constantly having trouble when running Hyper-V backups.
My topology is as follows:
- storage node FC attached to DD, using DD Boost
- Hyper-V standalone cluster that I wish to back up to the SN above
Although the DD is accessible only over FC, all other Standalone Hyper-V servers have client direct and block based backups enabled.
When I try enabling Client Direct and block based backups for the my new Hyper-V server, I get the error below
Unable to perform backup for save-set ID '' with DIRECT_ACCESS=Yes, check device and pool configuration to enable Client direct
Filesystem backups run just fine with Client Direct disabled, but I am not able to make Hyper-V backups complete successfully with Client Direct enabled or disabled.
I am also certain that the policy is correctly configured and that there is end to end connectivity between client, SN and server.
Do you mean if I select DD Backup and whether I tick the FC backup or not ?
If so, no, I do not select DD Backup, nor do I tick FC. All other Hyper-V backups run fine without this.
