I have read the FAQ's and such like that I can find but I cant seem to explain what I am seeing.
Consider the situation
- Veeam 8 Backup server & Repository
- VMWare backup proxy w/SAN access
- VMWare Backup proxy w/SAN access
I have 2 jobs, one consists of 21 VM's and the other consists of 2. When I set the proxy selection for automatic and start the jobs Veeam has set the proxy for all the VM's withing the 2 jobs to the Server 1 proxy thus leaving the proxy on server 2 sitting there idle when it could be servicing a backup request.
Other than manually setting the proxy, shouldn't Veeam try and use this Server 2 proxy when it has the same capability of Server 1?
Also, it looks like the proxy is allocated at the time of starting the job? Given my main 21 VM job takes over 24 hours to complete, can I assume that what Veeam decides at job start is what will be used even though during the 24 hour backup?
I have read post39946.html#p39946
and it would appear that the logic would suggest that this proxy would be used but it is not.
