We need to configure automatic scheduled backups of HA enabled VMs in our 3-Node cluster. We are running few DB & App VMs on nodes.

What is the best recommended method to achieve. Which mode (Stop, Suspend or Snapshot) will be the easiest way.

Thanks for your reply.

So, Can we configure on snapshot / suspend modes ? Will vzdump can able to command HA VMs to suspend.
