This issue has been solved. See solution.

I need some information with regards to Simplified System Recovery and Hyper v Agent VM recovery. Would you recommend doing a backup of the VMs from the Hyper V level using the agent or using the SSR feature. Note that the windows agent was installed on each VM (Application and DB Agent where applicable) What are the benefits of using these two features? Which of these restores would be beneficial.

Thank You

For using V-ray agent is benefit for backup and restore VMs if VM is corrupt, you can restore it by using this agentand for windows agent which install on each VM is benefit for backup and restore any application in VM like if you have SQL VM and you deploy application agent on it, you backup and restore sql and any instance if you have concurpt.

For SSR, Feature of it if you have corrupt within hardward or on HOST level and you want to restore Host (O.S) with Hyper-v and all things, then you will need SSR

If you backup the VM as a VM using the Hyper-V agent, then when disaster strikes you can just restore the entire VM and you are up and running.

If you backup the VM as a physical machine, then SDR (Simplified Disaster Recovery) will automate the recovery process. SDR will also allow you to convert the VM back into a physical machine when you restore it to actual hardware
