Enabling serialized hyper-v virtual machine backups in dpm

Here is an excellent blog posting by Matthew Hodgkins describing with screen shots on how to enable serialized hyper-v virtual machine backups in dpm.

So I would say follow Matthew’s Blog article , However I would make one slight change.

Copy the text below and save is as a .bat file and schedule the task to run the .bat file.

powershell “& {set-executionpolicy -executionPolicy bypass -force}” 

powershell “& “C:\Datascripts\ListVMsOnClusterForDPM.ps1”


Enabling serialized backups will prevent the following DPM error occurring.

Failed to prepare a Cluster Shared Volume (CSV) for backup as another backup using the same CSV is in progress. (ID 32612 Details: Back up is in progress. Please wait for backup completion before trying this operation again (0x8007173D))
