This package provides information on Red Hat KVM host integration with Data Protector and backup/restore on online virtual machines (VMs) in Red Hat KVM host.


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

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

Minimum Requirements

  • Ensure the KVM host is imported on 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.
