Hi there
I have a similar issue. I have installed Veeam 9 and my NetApp is on an iSCSI network. I have only connected my Veeam server directly to the LAN. I can browse and restore from my NetApp snapshots but I can't backup from them? When I scan my storage via Veeam I see the following error message

09/01/2017 14:21:33 Error Failed to obtain list of VMs on LUN NetApp-PLUN2 from snapshot MS_Daily.2017-01-05_2010 of volume NetApp_PLUN2_vol Error: There is no initiators available.

Presumably this is because my Veeam server has no NIC configured or connected to my iSCSI network? Is this all I need to do to enable backups from snapshots?

TIA
Stuart

Hi,

Your backup proxy server has to be properly configured. Also you have to add the storage to the backup network and backup infrastructure. Check this article for more info.
