Hyper-V Off Proxy on Windows Scale Out File Server?

Veeam Logoby enoch » Sat Apr 22, 2017 11:35 am

Hi all,

We're are going to upgrade our current Hyper-V 2012r2 to 2016.

Currently all Hyper-V hosts is using iSCSI initiator to Dell EqualLogic and Dell Compellent SAN's through Emulex NIC's. We will change alle Hyper-V hosts to use RDMA (RoCE) SMB3 to Windows 2016 Scale Out File (Cluster) which will then connect to all SAN's by iSCSI.

Currently we use Veeam On-Host Mode when running backups. If we're going to change to Off Proxy Mode, what is then required?

In 2016 is it still needed that the hosts running as Off Proxies have the Hyper-V role installed?

Hi Peter,

You just need to enable the proxy role on physical machine and choose the proxy in the job settings.

Yes, Hyper-V role is needed both for VMs which you want to use as off-host ones (not a recommended approach) and for physical machines.
Here is the full list of requirements.
Thanks!
