Adding vCD to Veeam

Post by levtech1 » Jan 21, 2019 11:12 pm

Hi All,

when adding vCD to VBR should the Public FQDN be used or an internal DNS name? should it just go to one cell or is there a best practice?

I think from a API perspective a cell is the point where Veeam can use.

Veeam can work with IP, short or FQDN names. It is a question what you want to see in the management interface.

Hi Andreas,

Thank you for the reply but i understand that the cell is the point it can use but what "Should" it use? today i have Veeam pointing to the public FQDN.

Hi Lev
we only use the api of vcloud cells and nothing more, all the data retrieved from vcloud are metadata, since all the backups and restores of actual data is done through the underlying vcenter/esxi. So, using public or private dns of the cells is more about the design you want to do, for us is the same.
Also, for a clustered group of cells, if you want to load balance and make it highly available also for Veeam, you should use the shared dns name. In short terms, I usually suggest to use the same dns that is given to end users and keep it simple.
