Windows Storage Server

Post by nickmancini » Jan 14, 2010 5:40 pm

Client wishes to purchase a NAS device running Windows Storage Server. Device is a high-rely BNAS HRS-201.

Single vSphere server using internal SAS storage for VMs.

Objective is to use the NAS as a storage for VM backups & replicas, and, (if possible) if the production server's internal RAID fails, to fire up the VMs from the NAS to get the system back up & running (albeit, with much slower performance).

I've read in the 4.1 release notes that Veeam is incompatible with Windows Storage Server. Not sure what the limitations are. Is the incompatibility referring to running Veeam on the Windowes Storage Server, or, using WSS as a NAS drive to store backups & replicas?

Please advise.

Thanks in advance!

This refers only to running Veeam application on the Windows Storage Server. Thank you.

Hi,

Can Veeam 9.5 U4 run on Windows Storage servers? I only really need the proxy and repository roles nothing else. I would assume rolls are fine, https://www.veeam.com/kb1923 this looks old though....

Thanks

Hey Jason,

Good catch. The article is indeed old but I do believe still relevant so I will ask our support team to look into it. As Anton states, Veeam "itself" cannot run on a storage server, but a windows storage server can be used as a repository server, and as a proxy server also. What storage server are you running? (I believe there is no 2019 version and I am even not aware of MSFT plans to make a 2019 version...)
