Backup mapped drives

Post by its-user01 » Oct 17, 2018 9:55 am

I am trying to backup an Linux server, with mapped drives from our san. But is it possible to backup mapped drives?

Veeam Software

Is the Linux server a VM? And (I think you are) using Veeam Backup & Replication? If so - and if those drives are either iSCSI targets mapped into the OS or NFS mount, they are not "part" of the VM. Because of that - they are not picked up by Veeam Backup & Replication.

If you are using Veeam Agent for Linux - the iSCSI targets assigned to the Linux system would be backed up.

If it is NFS mount, we can do file copy jobs in Backup & Replication - or hold for our upcoming NAS backup capability.

Does that make sense Brian? (Hope you are well!)
