I have 2 offices, one in Jackson, MS , and another in Oxford, MS connected together via a T-1 line. Each office has a 2008R2 Hyper-V Server with a handful of Server 2008R2 VMs. I have Veeam Backup and Replication 6.5 installed in Oxford, with a backup repository as a local F: drive on the Hyper-V server connected to the SAN and both Hyper-V servers are a backup repository.
For instance, the Jackson VMs backup to F: on the Jackson Hyper-V server. However, I seem to be having a problem. On the Oxford server where Veeam B&R 6.5 is installed, I will perform a restore of Guest Files on a Jackson VM, the restored files only restore at about 175KB/sec, which is the maximum throughput of the T-1. So, it seems that the Oxford Veeam B&R Server is pulling the recovery data across the T-1 from F: on the Jackson Hyper-V server, processing it, and then sending the recovered files back to the Jackson VM. My question is: Is there not a way to have the restore be processed locally at the Jackson, MS Hyper-V server so that the restore will happen at the Gigabit network speed?
