Is it possible to back up new path from the inside?

There are a couple of virtualos:
The domain controller, terminal server.
To back up the new path, you need to stop them.
Is it possible to back up new path from the inside, a built-in utility Windows Server backup without stopping the server??

New path in this respect no different from conventional machines.
You can even back up from the inside, though the outside.

Why? Isn't it easier to do snapshots of virtuallock, well, or at least a backup disk of virtuallock (in the version of Hyper-V's vhd files)?
Bekapy soft it usually does, makes snashot new path, compresses/deduplicates it, and transmits it to store backups. When the process is complete, the snapshot is deleted. The dev is not turned off and did not stop IO. - furman_Harris commented on April 4th 20 at 13:47
I had in mind. For a long time, inside bekapy only file resources. And so, a new path entirely.... - hollis.Hetting commented on April 4th 20 at 13:50

1.What hypervisor do you use?
2.Normally no need to stop dev for backup, enough to make a snapshot and backup the snapshot. This is how a large part of the software for backup of virtualos.
3.In many cases you cannot just take a snapshot and zabekapit new path, because the contents of the snapshot may not be consistent (and if I have to restore a snapshot, you run the risk of losing data). For example, if in virtual reality and spinning the database, then it should backup means the database, not the hypervisor. The same AD is essentially a database. In fact the backup snapshots is possible only for a file of garbage, or for server applications where only the installed applications that do not change frequently.

Can.
And in the case of a domain controller, and since Windows Backup makes a backup of the system state, which is convenient to operate for data recovery AD.
Well, plus Windows Server Backup during the job cuts ballooning the logs of any database - jet, MS SQL, exchange, etc.

Veeam backup is the coolest thing. Stable hinidina. Better not seen.
