Veeam Backup & Replication can perform backup, replication, and file copy operations on Microsoft Hyper-V VMs whose discs are located on Microsoft SMB3 file shares.

Veeam Backup & Replication can perform backup, replication, and file copy operations on Microsoft Hyper-V VMs whose discs are located on Microsoft SMB3 file shares.

If a Microsoft SMB3 server or cluster is not added to the backup infrastructure, Veeam Backup & Replication cannot process such VMs using the changed block tracking mechanism.

If VMs with discs on SMB3 shared folders are registered on Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2016 or later, a Microsoft SMB3 server is not required. However, if the Microsoft SMB3 server is not added, you cannot specify the Max snapshots and latency control settings for SMB3 shared folders.

Note:

You cannot use Microsoft SMB3 shared folder as storage for VM replicas.
