    I'm planning on using "Acronis True Image 9.1 Server for Windows" for system backup tool of fileservers that are Microsoft Cluster Service (MSCS) environment.
    Does "Acronis True Image 9.1 Server for Windows" support system backup of MSCS environment ?
    I hope that Acronis Support team will reply.

    Hello all,

    Thank you for using Acronis Server Disk Backup software

    Acronis True Image (server versions) can not back up the virtual server itself but Acronis True Image can back up and restore physical nodes as usual Windows servers. If the iSCSI/fiber disk is managed by the node that is backed up then Acronis True Image is able to back up this disk. In the case that this disk is offline Acronis True Image will not find it and will not back this disk up.

    Thus Acronis True Image (server versions) can back up nodes and virtual storage resources without any problems and there is no need to do any additional steps to back up a node within the cluster.

    Thank you
