I will be digging into that this matter week.

We are trying to do some kind of disaster recovery setup for XCP-NG/XenServer setup and Veeam.

The raw design idea we are having is Backup is done through ACS, Veeam collects the backup
once every X days for DR purposes.
Restore is a bit more problematic because dumping the VHDs back is fine but it wont show in
ACS GUI under the proper volume.
A good thing is that when volume backup is removed due to retention policy expiration the
ACS DB entry in table " snapshots" is kept but marked from "Backup" to "Destroyed" 
So during restore of the VHD if the name of the VHD can be used to revert that entry change
in the DB will probably make the backup appear in the GUI.

What I mention above is the worst case scenario where every step should be automated.
I need to dig into the backup framework and the api to see how they can aid this process.

Best regards,

Hi Abishek,

That's right, the current Backup & Recovery framework only supports Veeam provider on

For XenServer/xcpng, we don't have a plugin/provider, however volume snapshots can be used
to backup snapshots on secondary storage.

Subject: XCP-ng Backup Cloudstack 4.15

Hello EveryOne,

I am trying cloudstack with xen environment. I was trying out the backup feature of the cloudstack
and was not able to achieve it. Does the backup work in xen environment or it strictly only
works with vmware only.
