Hi all, new to Veeam but so far liking it a lot. I just setup 3 - stand alone Hyper-V Server 2012 R2 hosts, that host a couple windows vm's and quite a few Linux CentOS vm's. I have been running a trial of Veeam B&R with no issue from my Win 8.1 desktop. The repository is a Linux CentOS system, which is a separate physical server. Everything is in the same rack and the same switch/vlan/subnet. We purchased Veeam and I loaded it on a windows VM. On the first run it consumed way too much processor power and made a mess of things.
I thought I could easily setup a off-host backup proxy on a separate physical server running Hyper-V Server 2012 R2, but this is much more difficult than I thought. I have played with lots of settings, have done a lot of reading & searching, and even have a support case open (00708599). With all the playing I have had numerous types of failures from a "There is no FIB [summary.xml}" to the current error of "There is no hardware provider for off-host backup detected. Snapshot failover is disabled"
The one thing I have read is the off-host backup proxy needs access to the repository. With my off-host proxy being Hyper-V server 2012 R2 and the repository being Linux just what type of access is needed? The other Hyper-V hosts have access to the Linux repository through Veeam B&R, does this have to be setup separately? Is there anything else I may be missing?
Thanks in advance!
