Veeam Community Edition - Restore from Nimble Snapshot

Post by tsukraw »

Have a customer who we are working at getting to purchase Veeam.
First step is the community free edition.

They have a Nimble SAN today.
Looking at the comparison chart, under restore we see "Veeam Explorer for Storage Snapshots"
https://www.veeam.com/products-edition-comparison.html


I for the life of me cannot figure out how to get this configured.
I know if you have a licensed Veeam install there is a "Storage Infrastructure" tab. But this does not appear to be available in the free edition.

This configuration is a Hyper-V configuration. I saw some people saying that you might need to add a ESXI host or vCenter to get the tab to show up. In this case we do not have either. We have added the HyperV cluster but that didnt do the trick.


Any thoughts?

Hello,
This configuration is a Hyper-V configuration
that's the point. Storage snapshot integration is only available for VMware.

Best regards,
Hannes

So Veeam Explorer for storage snapshots only supports VMware?
You cannot use Veeam Explorer if it is a HyperV config?

Gotcha.
I wasn't aware of that. Thank you much for clarifying that.
