This package provides a mechanism to integrate Red Hat Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) hosts with Data Protector, by supporting the backup and restore of online virtual machines (VMs) in such hosts.


Product compatibility



Data Protector uses scripts to back up live, running, or online VMs in a Red Hat KVM host. The scripts are meant to be saved in the pre-exec and post-exec areas of the relevant backup specification. The pre-exec script creates a live external snapshot of the VM and saves it in the configured local/SAN storage mount point. The restoration of the VMs is handled by the post-exec script during restore.

This script uses Red Hat KVM features and functionality to carry out these operations.

Minimum Requirements

  • Ensure the KVM host is imported into the Cell Manager.

  • Ensure that the utility packages virt-manager 1.4.3 or later versions and virsh 3.9.0 or later versions are installed.

  • Ensure there is enough free storage (SAN or local filesystem) for backing up all the online VMs in Red Hat KVM host.
