Just some pointers really in the right direction and some questions about which version of Veeam to suit my infrastructure.
OK, basically I am on a trial version of Veeam B&R v7, I have a virtual machine running Veeam with an iSCSI drive presented to it where the backups are stored. When I run veeam backups it kills the network so I need to understand my options.
Does Veeam have the ability to intelligently backup directly to a drive\volume or share if the volume or the drive is running on the same virtual host that the VM is running on? Does Veeam even need to know this or is it something hyper-v will manage. And what if Veeam is on a VM on one host and wants to backup VMs on another host, is there a way to backup the VMs straight to the remote hosts local drive with something like a Veeam agent?
Obviously I will need to change the iSCSI network to a different subnet and use separate switches.
What is the normal accepted way to do this with shared storage?
