Current version of Parallels Virtuozzo Containers for Windows backup tools does not support backup of SCSI disks with enabled VSS by means of vzabackup.


There are two ways to work around the issue:
  1. Backup the container SCSI disks by means of VSS:
    112060 Parallels Virtuozzo Containers for Windows best practices and known limitations
  2. Stop the container before the backup by means of vzabackup:
    vzctl stop CTID
    vzabackup -F localhost -e CTID
