In hyperconverged infrastructures (HCI), it is preferred to keep the datamover close the the backed up VM to avoid stressing the storage replication network with backup traffic. If the HCI is providing storage via the NFS protocol (such as Nutanix or Cisco HyperFlex), it is possible to force a Direct NFS data mover on the same host using the following registry key:
Path: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Veeam\Veeam Backup and Replication
Default value: 0 (disabled)
Value = 1 - when a proxy is available on the same host, Veeam Backup & Replication will leverage it. If the proxy is busy, Veeam Backup & Replication will wait for its availability; if it becomes unavailable, Veeam Backup & Replication will switch to NBD mode.
I just received a confirmation from QA team that EnableSameHostDirectNFSMode option hasn't been implemented yet. It is planned for one of the future releases.
I apologize for the incorrect information in Best Practices book. I've requested to remove this option from the document until the feature will be implemented.
Unfortunately currently there is no possibility to reach the desired behavior automatically.
