Replication - Failing: Different subnets & memory connection

Network 1 - LAN: 192.168.6.x - ISCSI: 10.10.40.X
OBK-Backup (Backup seed's located locally here) - This is a physical server with 2 NICs
NIC1: 192.168.6.x
NIC2: Unplugged
OBK-Vproxy - This is a VM on 192.168.6.x network

Network 2 - LAN: 192.168.250.X - ISCSI: 10.10.20.X
NIC1: 192.168.250.x
NIC2: 10.10.20.x
NIC3: 192.168.6.x
NIC4: 10.10.40.X
mgmt-vcentre (is on this host)

Morning, all.

I am having a little issue with a new replication job that i am trying to setup. What I am trying to do is replicate VM's from the OBK-ESX hosts to the Sprite-esx06 host.

I have set the job up to pull the initial seed from the OBK-backup server where the daily backups are stored.

Now i was hoping that because we have a proxy and the target storage & host are on both Network 1 (192.168.250.x, 10.10.20.x) and Network 2 (192.168.6.x, 10.10.40.x) that this job would be as simple as creating the job in Veeam and pressing go.

However when the job starts I get the following informational error:
No available proxies are running on ESX(i) management interface subnet. Using proxies from a different subnet, performance may be impacted.

The job still starts however and it starts to pull from the backup seed however, it only does at most up to 1 GB of the backup files before I get an error message:

Code: Select all

Any insights into why this might be failing.
I've raised it under ref: 01827162 but the delay between the agent and myself is quite long and was hoping for a second pair of eyes on the setup.
