Veeam backup VM with iSCSI based drive

Veeam Logoby Zew » Wed Nov 02, 2016 7:13 pm

Lets say I have a windows VM, and this VM has an iSCSI disc. Can Veeam still back it up?

I'm assuming it will revert to Network transport mode to complete the task. Would I be able to do DirectSAN if this same iSCSI disc was visible to the Veeam sevrer much like a VMware based iSCSI datastore?

Thanks any responses.

Veeam only can backup virtual disks vSphere (or HyperV), iSCSI disks connected to the VM or within the OS arent supported and will be ignored by Veeam B&R.

Only if Veeam Endpoint Backup is leveraged. Thanks.

v.Eremin, so agent based then at that point.

Be Cool if Veeam implemented a DirectSAN, for NTFS as it does for VMFS.

Thanks for the replies guys!
