Yesterday I had to re-create a job for a big NFS file server, as we faced VBK corruption. Setup is as follows:
1 job w/ 1 virtual machine which has 7 disks on different VMFS, ~8 TB. Proxy selection is set to Automatic. Repository is configured to allow up to 4 parallel tasks. The Veeam proxy which was chosen (running on the same host as the virtual machine) is configured for up to 4 parallel tasks (4 vCPUs). Parallel processing is turned on under "Options - Advanced". Anyways, the initial backup would just hot-add and back up one virtual disk at a given time, which really slowed down processing (>120 MB/s).
Why is this? Am I missing something?

Yes, that's a known behavior for version 7. If you have only one proxy server, then disks from one VM cannot be hot-added to a single proxy concurrently. In order to resolve that you can either upgrade to v8 or use multiple proxy servers for paralleling processing of VM disks in the hot add mode.
