Well, that depends. A VM with an intensive throughput running from a backup may result in growing cache file on the NFSDatastore. So the answer is "yes, it is possible" but I don't think it's a good idea.Is this possible?
That depends on what kind of backup policy you use, but generally speaking - if a backup job needs to do something (merge, delete etc) with any of files involved in SureBackup's activity, then SureBackup Job will be stopped by that ob because backup job has a higher priority.Will the application group shutdown when the backup will run, since the servers in the application group belongs to that backup job?
I'd recommend you to restore a VM from backup into a separate resource pool behind proxy appliance, so it will work like a "normal" VM, without causing problems to your repo.What is best practice if a customer wants to have a sandbox environment running for one month and not disturb the backup/surebackup?
Yes, you'll need to assign restored VM to specific virtual networks so that the VM does not interfere with its production forerunner.Do you mean restoring it to a host and then assigning it to the correct veeam vswitch on that host?
Yes, restore them with different network settings (you can change them when configuring a restore job). I'd also recommend you to restore VMs to another storage so they do not affect your production performance.So a restore of all the vm's needed for the dev environmnent.
Yes, place restored VMs into an isolated network behind proxy appliance via replacing each VM's NICs with NICs belonging to a preconfigured virtual lab switch. If you need to setup some custom port forwarding rules then please refer to this guide explaining how to log in to proxy appliance.Then change the virtual switch on the vm's.
Correct.And then manually start the Proxy server (virtual lab) and the boot up the servers.
