I’m new with Duplicati and really like as far as I’ve used it. Now I’m trying to install it on Hyper-V Server 2102R2 (core server) and I’m having problems with VSS. It installs and works OK but I cannot use VSS for backuping my VMs because of AlphaVSS.x64.dll dependencies. The problem is I’m not able (or don’t know how to do it) to install C++ redist, it always goes to an error.
I’ve tried several versions, installers, commands… no way to make it work.
Anyone has this configuration running and could help me with it?
Thanks for your tip @Pectojin. We are using a NAS en the same LAN for virtual disk backup, so I really don’t care too much for that. I could even accept full backup every night (thats what’s happening now…). When talking about VM backup I only need Duplicati to access to this web interface and check everything is OK.
I ran into a similar issue with one of my fresh 2012R2 servers (for another project). You need to manually install the Microsoft service pack SP1 for the OS (it does not come in via Windows Update), then the C++ redist should install, and should be able to continue on.
