Just interested to hear from anyone with a Nimble SAN using Veeam. I have a new Hyper V Cluster and also a new CS240 SAN. To my knowledge veeam and nimble together go against each others best practices (nimble recommend in guest iscsi and veeam can't back that up).
So any advice on how you are achieving backups with Veeam, are you going with just CSVs and no in guest iscsi? Does this degrade performance on the Nimble or cause support issues? E.g Nimble have a couple of performance policies for Exchange but I wouldn't be able to use them (would have to user Hyper V CSV) as they will ultimately be a VHD in order for Veeam to back them up.
Also in terms of Nimble snapshots, are you ignoring Nimble VSS and having the Nimble take just crash consistent snapshots? Are you able to have veeam use the Nimble hardware snapshots (off host)?
As mentioned, any advice, gotchas etc very much appreciated!
