Dear all Hi
i have a question about backup proxy:
i know if i want send backup traffic from other vmnic have to create a backup proxy my veeam ip adress is 10.11.21.199 and i have installed a new server with ip address 10.11.21.197 (proxy server) add proxy server(10.11.21.197) to my repository proxy now when i create a new backup job in backup proxy select 10.11.21.197 veeam server is connected to vmnic1 and backup proxy is connected to vmnic2 now actuarly when i start backup job all of backup traffic had to send from vmnic2 but it send from vmnnic1 why backup proxy not work correctly?
To figure out which traffic you are seeing you need to understand the routes of data(not knowing your knowlegde): ESXi kernel port -> (Backup data path) -> backup proxy Backup proxy -> (Compressed backup data path) -> Backup repository Backup proxy -> (Control data) -> VBR server Backup repository -> (Control data) -> VBR server
If the backup proxy is virtual machine and the datastore of the virtual machine in the backup is available to the backup proxy's ESX host, it will use Hotadd(transport mode: virtual appliance). This will eliminate the "Backup data path" part. You have 3 ESXi host, and the proxy is running on 1 of them. So maybee the hotadd isnt possible for virtual machines running on the 2 other.
