C’était possible depuis le rollup cf http://blogs.technet.com/fabricem_blogs/archive/2008/07/15/dpm-2007-rollup-update-disponible.aspx mais avec la limitation de devoir arrêter ou mettre “en save state les VMs”
maintenant avec le SP1 tout est possible !! 🙂
Support for Protecting Hyper-V
Hyper-V, a hypervisor-based technology, is a key feature of Windows Server 2008. It provides a scalable, reliable, and highly available virtualization platform. DPM 2007 provided support for Hyper-V with guest-based protection (the protection agent is installed directly on the virtual computer). DPM 2007 SP1 now includes support for both guest-based and host-based protection (the protection agent is installed on the host computer).
Knowledge Base article 959962 (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=136583) on the Hyper-V host and the guest virtual machines is required for backing up Hyper-V Virtual Machines with DPM 2007 SP1.
For more information about prerequisites, issues and workarounds for Hyper-V protection, see Prerequisites and Known Issues with Hyper-V Protection (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=133781).
DPM 2007 SP1 does not support host-level backups. This means that you must use iSCSI to present volumes to the virtual machine or a remote Virtual Hard Drive (VHD). For these machines, we recommend that you use DPM to perform host-level backups of the VHD files, and then install a protection agent on the virtual machine to back up data that is not visible on the host. However, if you have at least one Virtual Hard Drive (VHD) of the virtual server on the local computer, DPM protects the local VHD.
DPM 2007 supports the following Hyper-V scenarios:
- Online backup
- Offline backup
- Local data source protection

Très bientôt tout cela en e-démos
Plus d’informations sur le SP1 de DPM 2007
Service Pack 1 for Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM) 2007 provides continuous data protection for Windows application and file servers using seamlessly integrated disk and tape media and includes the following expanded capabilities:
- Protection of Hyper-V™ virtualization platforms, including both Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V and the Microsoft Hyper-V Server, has been added to the existing set of protected workloads, building on the virtualization protection originally delivered for Virtual Server 2005.
- Enhanced SQL Server 2008 protection, including the addition of new protection capabilities for mirrored databases, support for parallel backups of databases within a single instance, and the ability to move data from SQL Server 2005 to SQL Server 2008 for migration scenarios.
- Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 receive index protection, significant catalog optimization, and support for mirrored content databases.
- Added protection for Exchange Server 2007 Standby Cluster Replication (SCR), enabling a complete disaster recovery solution that leverages SCR failover alongside DPM point-in-time restores.
In addition to enhancing the protection of each of the core Microsoft application workloads, additional capabilities have also been introduced with the release of DPM 2007 SP1, such as:
- Local Data Source Protection enabling the DPM 2007 SP1 server to act as a branch office server offering self-protecting File Services and Virtualization hosting within one platform.
- Cross-Forest Protection allowing large enterprise customers with multiple Active Directory® forests to now have even more flexibility in their DPM deployments.
- Provision for a Client DPML answers customer demand for a more cost-effective way to protect Windows XP and Windows Vista clients using the same DPM 2007 infrastructure that protects their servers
- Disaster Recovery capabilities within DPM 2007 SP1 now include the ability to leverage a third-party vaulting partner via the cloud (SaaS)
All of this new functionality builds on the features released in the DPM 2007 ‘Rollup Update’ in June 2008, which provided protection of Windows Server 2008, including Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 core, Windows Server 2008 System State and BitLocker™ support – as well as new tape media capabilities around tape sharing and media library sharing.
Between ‘Rollup Update’ and Service Pack 1, most of the core features of DPM 2007 have seen incremental capabilities or workload advancements which promises to keep Data Protection Manager on a trajectory toward improving how Microsoft customers protect and recover their Windows application and file servers with the Microsoft backup and recovery solution.
