Multiple agents on different Hosts

Post by SherrittOGP » Apr 07, 2014 9:36 pm


There is a known issue with NFS and using the Hotadd method where the snapshot commits cause an interuption, unless being run on the same host.

I am wondering, if i create multiple veeam proxy agents (one on each host), will the automatic agent selection use the agent which is on the same host as the VM being backed up.
currently documentation only suggests it selects the 'least busy' agent to perform the backup.

Hi Sherritt - yes it will, but only if you set special behavior modifier via the registry key. Check out the release notes for B&R 7.0 Patch #3a for more info. Thanks!
