Backing up Profile Containers RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We currently use User Profile Disks on Server 2016 RDS and are planning to migrate to FSLogix. the UPD's are  backupped by System Center DPM during the night, directly after the daily reboot.

    Should this be the same with the FSLogix Profile Containers or are backups possible while they are attached to a machine?

  • Hello,

    It is best to make sure the vhds are not attached when doing a backup so that all changes that are made in the vhd will be included and to avoid possible issues or corruption to the vhd. When a reboot is done make sure that all the profiles get logged off properly/finish the logout process. If the session is just terminated without a proper logoff there will eventually be issues if it keeps happening.

    You can use any software to do the backup that you want since the .vhds are all in the folder you specify.
