I'm currently playing around with B&R free edition and ran into some problems but hope you guys can help me. The infrastructure consists of two Hyper-V Server 2016 in the same domain and are connected via VPN. Each site has a NAS for backup repository so every host should directly backup to the repository on the own site. The B&R server is installed on site A where all backups run fine to NAS through the B&R server and this happens in the same way on site B. This is pain because backups are running over VPN to site A for processing and are sent back to the NAS on site B. On the Veeam webpage it is mentioned:
https://helpcenter.veeam.com/backup/fre ... cture.htmlIn the Hyper-V environment, VM data is processed on the source Hyper-V host that performs the role of the default backup proxy. The backup traffic goes from the source Hyper-V host to the backup destination, bypassing the Veeam backup server. The Veeam backup server controls the job performance.
So this is definitely not happening because traffics flows through the B&R server "mostly" every time I start a backup. I just got it working for two backups via VeeamZIP through the console but also have seen that one VM backup on site B was running over Hyper-V on site A as a proxy. So proxy is working but I cannot influence how and when the proxy is used due to the free edition that should consider this automatically. Just to add, I investigated which host was writing the backup by checking the active connections to the NAS. I also got the same behaviour when running backup via powershell script.
Hope you can help me,
