ISCSI Mount operations

Post by nblazincic »

According tohttps://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/backu ... tml?ver=95, Veeam uses an ISCSI mount for a DB restore. While all this works fine, during a restore I am limited (at least to my knowledge) to network speed of 1 ISCSI connection. I have a UCS environment where an I internally use 40 Gbps network, but backup infrastructure is outside of this blade system, on a 1 Gbps network, connected via multiple interfaces on LACP. Since LACP has its limits and the way it works, I would like to create two backup networks, and use them during restore. The goal is to speed up app item restore.

My question is: will Veeam use all available networks when it does ISCSI mount to temporary ISCSI target it has created for himself (I guess that means will it use MPIO) ?

Tnx, Nikola

Hi Nikola,

I believe that should work fine. Veeam in this case is playing the "dumb" software and just uses the ISCSI mount. If at the backend it is using MPIO for multiple networks, then we don't "see" that and just use what we have.
I do admit I have never tried this before but I see no issues with the setup
