I have a 2012 R2 Host with internal drives and no SAN. I have allocated two drives in a Raid 1 for my OS. I have the rest of the drives (4x) in a Raid 5. I allocated the Raid5 as a D partition to my host. I created my VMs on the D partition and it includes the VMSettings(MetaData) and the VHDX stoarage. In the Running VM,I have an agent installed to backup to a local BDR. I am backing up the Boot partition of the host. I am not backing up the D partition of the Host where the VHDX files are since the VMs themselves are backup themselves up.
How do you suggest I backup the VMSettings/(Metadata)? Do ypou have any suggestions for a best practice configuration for backup?
