Use Veeam NFS Datastore to store VM's temporary

Veeam Logoby Elefanten » Tue May 23, 2017 6:52 am

Hi

We have to do some maintenance on one of our datastores that is running on standard Raid 5 disks.
Just saw that Veeam creates a NFS datastore as in picture link and i wonder if i can migrate our VM's to this datastore while doing the maintenance ?
Is this safe ?

We use Veeam 9.5 on a dedicated backup server with 1GB NIC connection to VMware.

It depends on the Storage System where you have placed the NFS share at setup or configuration of the Repository. If this runs on a reliable Storage with Raid or other protection methods, it can be used (Instant VM Recovery run workloads there as well). But keep in mind that this datastore NFS share was never designed for this and specifically it is not designed to run a huge number of VMs.

I tend to say that our Support will not support these workloads on the NFS share.
