I'm demonstrating a client how he could use Veeam, and thus using a demo license to prove it's effective for him.
My temporary backup server is a Win7 Desktop (something stronger will be bought if he likes and buys Veeam), and my backup is on a NAS.
I'm trying to run InstantRecovery, and it always fails after 30 minutes or so, during the "publishing" phase.
The big problem: the backup is about 10 TB big, and I think it's a bit much for the server to manage. Small VMs have been instant-recovered without any problem. We can see huge data transfers from the NAS to the server, with no writes on the B&R server disks. On the ESXi host, the NFS datastore is mounted but that's it.
On the NFS datastore, on one of the created folders (on per attempt), I can see the four huge vmdk files, on the others I cant.
Is it possible, maybe via the registry, to increase the 30 mn timeout, so I can at least prove it works? What would be the server requirements (Server+repository proxy+NFS) to manage such a big file?
I only have 4 days of trial left to prove it's viable, any help would be much appreciated!!
