I'm evaluating Veeam backup in a new private cloud setup. I'm all Microsoft, using a storage spaces cluster with a scale out file server combined with a hyper-v cluster. I have a single physical Veeam server with four 1 GBe nics. One is LAN and the three remaining is private SMB3. My infrastructure setup is connected to both hyper-v and SMB cluster. Backups are working as expected. The Veeam server is configured as a off host proxy and performs backups with redirection to SMB snapshots and using the SMB nics. However restores only use the LAN nic and traffic is directed via a hyper-v node.
Is it possible to redirect restore data directly to the SMB cluster and thus using the three SMB nics? That would really improve restore capabilities and might be a deal maker
