Hyper-V Veeam Backup Proxy

Veeam Logoby micoolpaul » Wed Nov 23, 2016 9:26 am

Morning all,

Saw somewhere the other day that someone in the absence of any "free" appliances/Linux veeam backup proxies was using the free Hyper-V OS to have instances on their servers to improve hot add backups.

I can't find the link anywhere and searching the forum for anything to do with "Hyper-V proxy" is turning up nothing. Has anyone done anything like this, if so how successful do you find it? Was there anything unexpected you discovered? Is this a breach of licensing?

Thanks!

Hi,

I'm not sure if I got it right - do you want to use a VM as a proxy for vmware infrastructure, or you want to setup a hyperv proxy role on a hyperv VM? Please elaborate.

Thank you

Hi Michael, assuming that you're able to setup a Veeam backup proxy on the Windows Server Core machine, then you can use this VM as a hotadd proxy. BTW, why do you want to do this? What's your current job bottleneck?

Technically this will work, but I cannot advice on Microsoft licensing aspect of this approach. There's most definitely an existing discussion on this around here...

Hi,

I'm purely after using it as a proxy VM as I've got 4 physical servers so I'd like to leverage the benefits of using hot add on each physical server without spending on 4x Windows Server Licenses for dedicated proxy VMs.

I'll have to look up more on the licensing side of things but good to know it's technically possible. I know I read it somewhere but searches are coming up empty on the end result!

Thanks,
Michael
