Hi we are about to push the button on a hyper-v 2 node setup using an equalogic san and dpm 2010. My question is if we use an iscsi initiator to the san from the host for each proposed vm so that everything is stored on the san can we backup the vm at the host level using dpm 2010 and recover the whole machine plus do item level restores for file servers. I thought this was possible to do with out using an agent in the guest if it isn't for exchange, share point or sql but I read this in a book and now I'm a little confused
"it is not possible to carry out host level backup either for virtual machines that have pass-through disks assigned to them or where the virtual machine connects to remote storage, as is the case with iscsi, so an alternative strategy will need to be considered for protecting those specific types of virtual machines."
Is this the case or are they talking about if the iscsi connection is from the guest machine and not the host as I am under the impression that non of the VM files will be on the host machine and everything will be on the san?

In this article, I am going to show you how to simulate a multi-site Lab environment on a single Hyper-V host. I use this method successfully in my own lab to simulate three fully routed global AD Sites on a Windows 10 Hyper-V host.
