Backing up a Windows Server with Hyper-V Role and live Domain Controller VM

Hi, This is a physical server Windows 2019 standard with Hyper-V role running a live Domain Controller VM. We use a licensed version of Backup for Microsoft Windows to backup this entire server. My questions are: Is Vembu Backup for Microsoft Windows Hyper-V VM aware ? During backup could the VM be disrupted? Does the backup support a VM only restore?

On a side note: All our production VMs run in a Hyper-V cluster including another DC, we needed a standalone DC outside of the cluster to allow the cluster to come up after shutdown.

Many thanks in advance.
