NOTE: When adding a new Hyper-V server to the inventory, NAKIVO Backup & Replication will automatically install the following in the server:

  • The Transporter service: This service will be used to read data from source VMs during backup and replication. 
  • The Changed Block Tracking (CBT) driver for Hyper-V 2012(R2) servers: This driver will track changes inside Hyper-V VMs at the block level. Instead of reading an entire VM disk in order to identify changed data, NAKIVO Backup & Replication will request the CBT driver to provide a list of changed data blocks, which will enable fast incremental backup and replication of Hyper-V VMs.
