Nutanix cluster as replication target

Post by Jeff L » Feb 07, 2017 10:11 am

Currently using VBR 9.5.0.823.
Have no issues backing up or restoring, and have just swapped my single DR host out for a nutanix cluster, for replication use.

Nutanix clusters present the storage as an SMB 3 share to the Hyper-V hosts. The MS cluster service doesn't "see" the storage.

So when you try to browse for the path for the Replica, it fails, as it can't see the path. You can't add the UNC path manually either.

Can Veeam just be told to use the default paths set on the hypervisor? Or am I just doing something wrong?

So, just a followup on this in case anyone else asks the question.

My Veeam Server is built on Server 2016; For server 2016 to be able to access the SMB 3 share on Nutanix, the Cluster has to have Kerberos Authentication enabled.

All good now :)
