Sites are connected by WAN….decent speed, but still a WAN.
Veeam A shows all the backup repositories of Proxy B and has Proxy B setup.
What I want is for the Veeam Server in A to backup a VM in Network B’s cluster and store it in B but at the same speed as Veeam Server B’s backups.
I was under the impression that’s the function of the backup proxies however a Backup Job created on Veeam A is taking “WAN Time” as opposed to “local time”…and Veeam A is showing high net traffic that whole time, making me believe it is WAN’ing that date from B to A to B, which is dumb.
Example a new job on Veeam B to backup VM takes 1 hour for full backup, same job on Veeam A I canceled at 10 hours at 6%.
So either what is the procedure for setting this up or how do you tell a job to run locally via a specific proxy?

In order to keep VM backup traffic locally you should be using proxy server in site B and the job should be pointed to repository in the same very site. Can you please confirm that proxy in site B is used via backup job session details?

Jason, to set the job use the particular proxy in site B, you should explicitly select it from the list instead of 'Automatic selection' at the Storage step of the job wizard.jayinjersey wrote:So either what is the procedure for setting this up or how do you tell a job to run locally via a specific proxy?
