veeam proxies server should connect to FC?

Post by desmond shio » Nov 25, 2011 5:21 am

Hi,

My Virtualization environment is using FC connection to storage (vm datastore), I just want to know if i separate 2 server one is veeam backup console only ( physical server ) and another is proxies server ( physical server ), should i need to connect FC to proxies server for better performance? Can i connect FC to proxies server in order to see the vmdatastore LUN on Veeam backup console to use direct san mode backup for LAN free backup? or i still need to attach FC connection to my veeam backup console as same as previous v5?

Please see this diagram

Hi Shio Soon Chyuan,

If you want to use direct SAN mode for the backup jobs, please configure backup proxies only.

There is no need to have direct FC connection to the backup console, as all VM data processing is now (v6) offloaded to backup proxies.

Thanks!

Yes, but you may also want to review the updated system requirements once v6 is available.

Yes, SQL Server is required to store backup/replication jobs and other configuration data.
