Virtual Server 2005 interfering with Acronis True Image Enterprise Server
Posted on 2009-05-06
Hello, whilst installing Acronis True Image Enterprise Server it has come to my attention that Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 might be interfering with the ATIES installations.
I am running a Windows Server 2003 host, and running Windows XP as a virtual machine within it.
I then attempted to install ATIES. The installations were taking much longer than expected. Two of the components installed OK (after a long delay), but the third failed, saying that it had been interrupted. When I checked the logs of VS2005 it said XP not responding it may have crashed. around the same time as the ATIES installation.
I immediately shut down the virtual machine and reinstalled all components of ATIES, and now ATIES works fine.
Is this interferance something that is common? I am not worried about the ATIES install any more, but I am now worried that having the virtual machine running will interfere with ATIES in the future when it backs up my system.
Is there some confuguring that needs to be done to prevent the virtual machine from interfering, without actually shutting it down or pausing it?
I dont want my virtual machine to be shut down unless absolutely necessary.
By the way, does ATIES have a facility to back up a running virtual server from the host. What component of ATIES takes care of this?
Thanks for your help.
