I ran into a possible issue today while restoring a VM. In the "Full VM Restore Wizard" I selected "restore to a new location" and selected the hotadd proxy. When selecting the datastore, Veeam detects it is on "datastore-2", I change this to the datastore cluster "datastore-cluster" which it was living on originally. This is all fine up until the restore starts. Veeam uses NBD instead of hotadd if I restore to a datastore cluster (even though nbd failover is not checked off). If I leave it on datastore-2 it will then restore using hotadd.
Is this expected behavior? I will open a support case if not.

Depending on what actual datastore within the datastore cluster is automatically picked when you select "datastore-cluster", it may be normal (for example, if your proxy cannot hot add disks on the picked datastore).
P.S. I removed debug logs snippets as perform forum rules.
