So you have 2 servers installed? I am confused about the VMNIC1 and VMNIC2 part. Could you explain what behaviour you see during the job or what the log says?

dear friend
Hi

i have 3 server on my esxi host

vcsa = 10.11.21.192 on vmnic1
veeam = 10.11.21.199 on vmnic1
backup proxy = 10.11.21.197 on vmnic2

i monitor network usage on my esxi host when in job i select backup proxy (10.11.21.197) all of backup traffic have to send from vmnic2 but most of traffic sent from wmnic1

Are they connect to the same vSwitch? This looks more of a VMware issue / question then Veeam if it goes outside the machines.

By any chance, do you still have the default proxy enabled. It could be that in this case, the default proxy on the backup server was selected to be the proxy

I would advise to contact support for insight as it is hard to understand without this.

Are these all Virtual Machines running proxy?
If one is a physical machine it will not use hot-add and jobs will queue on the other proxies rather than run nbd on a physical server.

Any chance the repository is CIFS share presented to the backup server?

Hi Baber

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.

Not sure if it helps ?

Have a nice weekend,
Henrik
Have nice day,
Henrik

It will be selected automatically in case it is available and automatic transport mode selection is enabled.
