The order selected by the automatic process seems to give preference to standalone over virtual, regardless of the system capability (CPU type, RAM, load) and for VM's it seems to choose the Veeam system over any other VM's.
I am currently testing with 3 proxies. Veeam VM, a 2008R2 VM that has nothing on it but the proxy and an external Win7 x64 legacy system with a single dual core. (both 2008 systems are 4 core- going to 8 when host is upgraded to VSphere5)
Ideally, I would like to be order to set a preference order - or at minimum have it select via some known method that I can manage.
If I manually set the proxy, the dedicated 2008 VM is fastest, the Veeam VM about 15% slower (as expected) and the standalone is about 35% slower than then dedicated 2008 VM. With automatic selection, Veeam is choosing external, Veeam VM, dedicated VM - the reverse of my performance and preference.
The downside to setting my jobs to manual is of course the lack of redundancy.
