Only Local Backup Destinations available

Post by pbranscombe »

Hi Guys,

I've recently installed a test environment for VMWare consisting of 4 ESXi 4 servers + vCenter and have VEEAM installed in a VM.

When I try and specify a destination for a backup job (vStorage API with mode:virtual appliance) the only option available is "This computer or shared folder" ... Why am I unable to choose storage attached to the ESXi servers?

The other thing I should mention is that I am able to choose a Host as a destination if i choose a 'VM Copy' job as opposed to a 'Backup Job'.

Is there something I have missed during setup?

Veeam Backup Server
Win 2008 x64 VM, 1vcpu, 4Gb RAM
installed SQLExpress with defaults

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Hello Pete,

There is an existing topic with the same question, please have a look:
ESX(i) host not listed in destination for backup

Thank you!
