I've read all the helpcenter and guides I can find but I'd like to confirm I've configured my set-up correctly before I go and roll it into production.
Currently I have a HP Blade (BL460c Gen8) connected to our VCM (Virtual connect module) in exactly the same matter as our ESXI hosts (Basically I could install ESXI over the top of Windows and this Blade would work 100%). We use FC to connect to our 3PAR.
This means that I have presented all my ESXi VV (Virtual Volumes) to the Physical blade as well. When I look at Diskmgmt.msc I can see all the LUNs as offline.
My understanding is this is how it's meant to be? Is this correct?
I've configured a test VM and test LUN and Storage Snapshot backups are working correctly with no errors.
The main reason I'm posting here I guess is that I'm not comfortable with all the LUNs being on the Veeam server as offline if it's not needed. But if this is the correct set-up then so be it. This post is more for my piece of mind.
