Veeam database on multisubnet AlwaysOn cluster

Post by nmdange » Feb 07, 2019 3:35 pm

The documentation states it is supported to run the Veeam configuration database on an AlwaysOn Cluster:
https://www.veeam.com/kb2301

Does Veeam support the multisubnet option? By default, if an alwayson cluster is in multiple subnets, all IPs are registered in DNS by default, but this only works if the client include "multisubnet" in the connection string. Does (or can) Veeam include this option in the SQL connection settings, or do I need to modify the AlwaysOn listener to only register the currently active IP address?

Note that I haven't tested this yet, was hoping someone would know before I break my Veeam server :)

Hello,
today this configuration is untested / not supported, but we are looking into that for future versions.

Thanks for bringing up this feature request.

Best regards,
Hannes

Thanks, I'll go with setting RegisterAllProvidersIP to 0 then.
