I am trying to backup a 2008 R2 server using DPM 2010. I want to be able to backup using child partition snapshot instead of steady state because I need to backup the server a couple times a day while in production.  The problem here is I notice if you have 2 virtual hard drives on this VM is will not allow me the option to backup using child partition snapshots.  I need to have the 2 virtual drives on the machine. (This is a file server).

How do I get around this or is there something I need to verify or do differently to make this work?

Hi

Look at this URL:
http://www.eggheadcafe.com/software/aspnet/33877049/backup-using-child-partition-snapshot-and-backup-using-saved-state.aspx

If at least one of the following conditions is true, DPM cannot backup a
Hyper-V VM in online(running) state:
1) The integration components for volume snapshot copy disabled for theVM
2) Dynamic disks configured inside of the VM
3) Non-NTFS based partitions inside the VM
4) Changed shadow storage assignments within the VM.
5) VM is not in running state.
In such a case, the VM is put into saved state before the host volumes are
snapshotted for back up. For such VMs, HyperV writer reports the VM
datasouce name in the format "Backup Using Saved State\<VMName>". If online
backup is possible for a VM, the format will be "Backup Using Child
Partition Snapshot\<VMName>".

If its a file server, then why not just backup using a DPM agent in the guest ?

Neither answer resolved the issue.  I already verified the 1st response. I can google the answer too!  All of those were correct.  

I resolved the issue by creating 1 VM drive and partitioning 2 drives on the .vhd.

Thanks for the repsonses anyways.
