AHV Proxy appliance question

Post by Johnson » Jan 22, 2020 1:08 am

Dear Community,

I would like to check if I can install 2 proxy appliance in the same AHV cluster?

Existing environment:
1 x AHV Nutanix cluster
1 x Windows Veeam Backup VM (vLAN A)
1 x Proxy appliance (vLAN A)

New configuration (Is this supported?):
- Add 1 more Windows Veeam Backup VM (vLAN B)
- Add 1 more proxy appliance (vLAN B)

Reason for the above config is that we have different customers on board in our Nutanix cluster.
Both of the customers VM will be sitting in different VLAN. Eg: VLAN A and VLAN B

I have looked into this link:
https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/van/u ... tml?ver=10

The limitation is "You can add only one Nutanix AHV cluster per proxy appliance"
However, in my case above, I want to have 2 proxy appliances in the SAME AHV cluster, backing up different sets of VM.

Is this supported?

Hello,
I talked to QA and the main question does not seem to be support. The main question is, whether it makes sense. Due to Nutanix CBT implementation, each proxy will cleanup the snapshots from the other proxy. So you would not have CBT anymore which would be 90s style backup...

Best regards,
Hannes

If this is the case, then how does an IaaS provider cater to dedicated Veeam backup server for individual customers VM that is residing in the IaaS infra?

sorry, I don't have a solution for that today (except going for agent based backup)
