The documentation has the following recommendation:
This seems like a fine recommendation, but how should one operationalize this in the context of Veeam? For example, there is no support for multihomed hotadd proxies, so how would one 'isolate' the 'network to transport data' between proxies?Isolate backup traffic. Use an isolated network to transport data between backup infrastructure components — backup server, backup proxies, repositories and so on.
My understanding is there is no support for using alternate names/addresses for ESXi hosts, so for example if vCenter reports hosts as 'host.fqn' and an alternate management interface exists within the environment at 'host.fqdn.backup' there is no way to make Veeam B&R aware of this alternate isolated interface without munging /etc/host files?
Thank you kindly, any further reading on the topic (specific to VBR) will be welcome.
