iSCSI as BackupRepository ?

Post by Henere » Jul 31, 2018 10:57 pm

Hi there,

doing my first steps with VEEAM B&R. Searching for over an hour now... how can i add a backuprepository using MS-iSCSI-Initiator. Have 2 NAS connected, no drive Letter assigned.
Can someone tell me how to use them to store the backups on them ?
Both NAS are QNAP.

Regards, Henere

Hi Henere,

First: Welcome to our forums!
Second: I might misunderstand your question but what do you mean with no drive letter assigned?

If you've already mounted the NAS LUN to the backup server via iSCSI Initiator, you need to format it with either NTFS or ReFS and use that local volume as repository.

I'm pretty sure you must have a drive letter assigned. We use iSCSI + ReFS (we don't have any high performance needs right now).
