NFS 4.1 multipathing

Post by scidoner » Jun 20, 2018 9:30 am

Hi guys!

Is there any chance to get Veeam to support NFS 4.1 multipathing when using Direct NFS transport mode?

My ESXi hosts are connected to a NFS 4.1 share across 2x 1GbE links, which is working correctly.

If Veeam would connect to the NFS 4.1 share via the two links as well, I feel like it would seriously improve performance.

Cheers.

I can confirm that we do not use NFS 4.1 mutlipathing at DirectNFS or Backup from Storage Snapshot (NFS).

We will treat this as a feature request. Based on policy of Veeam we can not comment about the future implementations and timelines.

Thanks for the reply + confirmation that it is currently not supported (saves me going mad trying to configure it!).

No problem at all, I hope to see it implemented some day so thanks for acknowledging it as a feature request!

Yep I have just come across this issue in an environment ( and confirmed in my lab)

It would be useful if this could be implemented
