Please bear with me, I'm a very green Veeam user, sorry in advance!
Anyway, I'm experiencing an issue with my Veeam/Hyper-V setup.
I have two VM's in my production environment. VM1 is set up with a dedicated NIC on the server (through SR-IOV) and VM2 is set up with a normal virtual switch. Both machines are able to be backed up without issue.
I've created an Application Group containing the 2 VM's. Also a Virtual Lab with advanced single-host networking (basic didn't work, so tried this instead).
ProdSwitch <-> Lab Network Switch - VLAN ID 0 (nothing)
vNIC - Lab Network Switch - MasqIP: 192.168.100.x - Appliance IP 192.168.0.1 (same as our gateway, it filled it in automatically) - DHCP: Yes - DNS: 192.168.0.15 (our production DNS server)
When doing the SureBackup, the Proxy Appliance VM starts fine. Both VM1 and VM2 boot up after that, in that order. While VM1 boots, I go into Hyper-V Manager, and under NIC's, the Lab Network Switch isn't attached to VM1. Warnings messages pop up in Veeam statistics for VM1 as well regarding network being unmapped (check below). I leave SureBackup job running and wait for VM2 to start. When it does I check settings for VM2 and there it is, Lab Network Switch is attached and no warnings are received for VM2.

Any hints, MUCH appreciated
