DP 7.0 on a Hyper-v 2012 Cluster, Snapshot left behind after backup.

Hi,

 

I have DP 7.01 running on a Win2008r2. Im backing up Win2012 Hyper-v VMs via integration agent, after the backup a snapshot is left on the VM, no errors on backup and no incremental option enable. This happens on all of my VMs and is consuming lots of space. fortunately Windows 2012 can merge disk online but i have to do this in a daily basis.

 

 

note: Same DP has no option for Incremental backups on a Windows 2008R2 cluster 

 

Any solution?

For a better understanting I uploaded a sequence of pictures:

 

Before backup --> no snapshot

Backup source VM

No incremental option selected --> there is no overall incremental for this VM in any other specification

backup starts on DP --> check time it starts creating the snapshot

backup starts, view from hyper-v --> time is closely the same as the one on the previous pic

 

will continue on the next post, Cant upload more than 5 pics at a time

and here the last pics

 

backup ending in DP --> states that it deletes the volume shadow copies

backup end view from hyper-v --> there is a snapshot left behind after the backup is 100% complete.

 

Data protector left this snapshot, it does the same on every Virtual machine I backup.

 

Any solucitions/ideas or has anyone faced the same issue?

 

regards,
