I would like to know why recovery of a VM (in more detail VMDK files) is not possible through the direct san option.
Other backup & recovery vendors do support this option and this really makes sense in a FC or iSCSI environment.
From the Veeam VMware manual (page :
For writing data to the target destination, Veeam Backup & Replication normally uses the Network
mode. In some cases, such as VM replication or full VM recovery, Veeam Backup & Replication also
supports the Virtual Appliance mode. You cannot select the transport mode for writing data —
Veeam Backup & Replication selects it automatically, based on the backup proxy configuration.
Whenever possible, the Virtual Appliance mode is used.

The feature of Direct SAN Restore is handy for thick disks and should be included in our next releases. There is a comprehensive discussion about the topic. In order to speed up the recovery process it's recommended to have a virtual proxy specified in Hot Add mode.
