If you are using the default system VSS provider and want to begin using the hardware VSS provider, you must do the following:

  1. Install the hardware VSS provider on the host computer and ensure that your Storage Area Network (SAN) is configured for hardware snapshots.

  2. Delete the %Programfiles%\Microsoft DPM\DPM\Config\DataSourceGroups.xml file from the DPM server.

  3. Set the following registry key on the DPM server:

     

    Key

    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Microsoft Data Protection Manager\2.0\Configuration\MaxAllowedParallelBackups

    Value

    Microsoft Hyper-V

    Data

    3

    Type

    DWORD

  4. To complete this process, you must run the Modify Protection Group Wizard for each protection group that protects the virtual machines on this cluster.
