As Veeam now has access to Nimble Snapshots, even those on volumes not connected to VM's or VMWare/hyper-v (Standalone iSCSI volumes, etc)... Is it possible to back up these snapshots without selecting a VM, or is everything VM based at this point? If not possible, could we get a feature request to add this capability?
The reason this is important to my environment, is that we have several Microsoft Windows failover clusters utilizing direct mapped iSCSI volumes on the Nimble. If the volumes are configured as a shared SCSI volume in VMWare, it is impossible to snapshot the VM. The alternative was to have a volume mapped directly in Windows (but the VMWare is unaware of the volume). I believe we could still backup the volume(s) utilizing agents, but if Veeam has access to the SAN snapshots, it would make more sense to leverage backing up the volume directly via snapshot, and not need the agent(s).
