currently we are trying to set up Veeam Backup in our Environment.
Most of our VMs have VMDKs, which reside on SAN Storage.
For that we use a virtual job server and a physical proxy server and configured Direct Storage Access.
We also configured separte VLAN only for backup + plus own network components between the involved components to not interfere with production network.
It's working really great so far.
Some VMs however use storage from a NAS system. In this case backups are configured to
fall back to Network Mode. But the throughput is rather bad. The maximum read was about 85MB/s.
We configured vmkernel interface on the ESX Servers, put them in the backup VLAN and gave them one 10G interface each.
A Ping from the Proxy to the configured vmkernel interface of the ESX Servers works.
tracert reveals that no additional hops are involved.
Additonally I edited the hosts file on the proxy and the job server, and inserted the vmkernel ips + Hostname of the respective ESX Server.
Did we miss somthing?
