How can we specify which mount server is used to perform file level restores?
I've just experienced a very slow restore, due to a poor choice of mount server having been selected, but cannot find a way to select a better one.
In my case a off-site backup was mounted to the onsite console via Veeam Power NFS.
From the backup guide, it would appear the repository server (Windows), which has also the mount service should have been chosen, and this would have been ideal.posting.php?mode=post&f=2
"Backup repository. For Microsoft Windows backup repositories, the mount server role is assigned to the backup repository server itself."
"If you do not want to use default mount servers, you can assign the mount server role to any Microsoft Windows machine in the backup infrastructure. It is recommended that you configure at least one mount server in each site and associate this mount server with the backup repository residing in this site. The mount server and backup repository must be located as close to each other as possible. In this case, you will be able to keep the VM traffic in one site."
So I'm aiming for the windows server hosting the backup repository to be the chosen mount server, keeping Veeam Power NFS on-site, then only copying the chosen files across the WAN.
I've raised a ticket with support, who suggested installing the console at the remote site, which should get around this issue, but this means installing multiple consoles at multiple sites, and remembering to login to the correct ones.
Shouldn't it be possible to manage all of this from a single console? My understanding from the release notes implies this.
