Hi all this one has me Stumped

We have a Hyper V Host with about 7 Vms on it consisting of Server 2008, 2003, CentOS etc.

We have software (3rd Party) that backs up all of the Vms, however when the job runs for the first 5 - 10 mins connectivity to any of those VM's becomes non existant, then after that time i can reconnect.

We have one network card and a virtual switch configured for external access?

Is the backup across the same network?

and causing it to saturate and causing network issues?

The Backup is installed on the host (Hyper v) and backs up all of the Vm's, yes this only happens when selecting a backup

Does their status change to “Saved” during those 5-10 minutes? It could happens to CentOS VM but not to Windows Server 2003 and 2008 if the Integration services are installed.

This is normal for both; they do not support VSS. But you should not lose connectivity to Windows Servers. It's this the case?

I Think you have just hit the Nail on the Head.

We were using the XP Machine as a kind of Remote Portal, from where we would then log onto the Hyper V Server, since you just said XP does not support VSS, which i was unaware of that explains why we keep loosing connection

Glad to help.

FYI: only the enterprise editions of Windows 7 or 8.1 (available via Software Assurance in OLP channel) have full support of VSS.
