From the manual:

"Physical tapes, media
changers, and CD/DVDburners are attachable; they can be used to performdata backups directly
from a virtual machine (see Section 7.1.3.2.2 (page 92))."

Hope this helps!

Re: how to backup IVM guest OS - windows

Hy,

We use the san DS8300 storage flashcopy utility to backup the SO that is configured as raw disks. it's called Buisness copy on HP storage, just a bit to bit copy of the disk but it's done by the storage.

For some HPVM that have their SO disk as a lvm raw device we are use mirrors.

And the file disks of SOs we copy with TSM on the host.

Hope it helps.
Windows?, no thanks
