Dear All, I am very happy with Veeam, but now unsure about my configuration
We have a Dell Storage with 2 Dell Servers connected to it. I have had a physical PC as Veeam Server connected with GB LAN to the ESXI Servers. Installed a veeam proxy on a virtual machine on the cluster. (Win 7 64 professional)
My thougt was, that the proxy hot adds the virtual disc of the host which i want to backup, processes the data and then moves it through the network interface of the VM to the LAN-conncected backup repository (in my case was this repository on the veeam server)
My first Veeam Server died about half a year ago and i build a new one. But it seems i forgot to add the virtual machine proxy in the configuration, and so all the backups (i have had a look in the history) where processed just by the standard proxy installed on the veeam server. it does hot add, the backups aren´t slower than before (when there would have been a difference, i would have found the missing proxy earlier)
i don´t understand:
I thougt that hot add is only possible with a proxy with direct access to the storage. In my case with the physical proxy without direct connection to the storage the only possible mode would be network transfer. But that should i see in the history an there´s nothing about network mode or something similar.
How can that be? Is my configuration wrong how i implemented the virtual machine proxy? Am i using network transport mode without knowing it?
Please give me a hint!
