Data Protector uses scripts to perform backup and restore of Nutanix AHV VMs. These scripts are used as pre/post- execution scripts in the filesystem backup specification. These scripts use the Nutanix REST APIs to carry out the VM management operations (snapshot, backup, restore, etc). The latest version of the package 10.91(2021.02) has been approved by Nutanix as being Nutanix Ready AHV INTEGRATED in Data Protection.
During the backup, the pre-exec script creates a live external snapshot of the AHV VMs and mounts it on the backup proxy. These snapshots and mount points can then be backed up with a filesystem backup or Disk Image backup.
• If backup is taken at file level, then individual files can be restored on the backup proxy.
• If backup is taken as disk-image, then only full VM can be restored using the restore scripts.
During the backup, post-exec scripts are used for cleanup of snapshot and temporary files. During the image level restore, the post-exec scripts are used for restoring the raw data.
