AHV virtual machines

This section provides considerations and requirements for protecting virtual machines hosted in Nutanix Acropolis Hypervisor (AHV) environments.

NOTE   AHV host-level backups include the VM file data but not the Acropolis File Services data that is internal to the Nutanix share. To protect this internal data, you can add the Nutanix share to the Unitrends appliance and run Unitrends NAS backups over the NFS protocol. Start by reviewing the requirements in NAS protection using CIFS/NFS. Next, add the share to the Unitrends appliance as described in To add a NAS CIFS or NFS asset. Then create a backup job as described in To create a NAS CIFS or NFS backup job.
