Veeam Logoby tolgaunturk » Tue May 03, 2016 2:34 pm

Hi,

We are trying V9 our envoirment. We need to help about connectivity of VNX and Veeam Management Server. I will explain our platform as like below;

* ESXI Server
* VM for Veeam Management Server on ESXI 5.5u3
* VNX Storage Group
* FC SW Connectivity between Host and Storage

Well,

When we start to job we was take an error like "Cannot find backup proxy capable of retrieving VM data from storage snapshot "

Can you tell us how can we resolve this issue ?

Many Thanks

Hi,

In order to backup from snapshot you have to properly configure backup proxy, please take a look at this article and make sure that your etup meets all the requirements. If everything has ben setup correctly then please open a case with our support team and post your case ID here.

In order for a backup from storage snapshot to work properly there should be a Windows-based proxy server that has given storage connected to it via FC.

In your case it doesn't seem that there is at least one proxy server ,besides a default one (VB&R console).

Thanks.

Hi to All,

First of all i am thanks to all of you for your responds quickly. I think so you forward me to physical connection. But i need resolve this issue by VM Proxy. I cant seperate resource for precess. Also i was read https://helpcenter.veeam.com/backup/vsp ... iw_hp.html document. Also this document forward to physical connection i mean i think like that.

I was try WWN Port via VM to enable RDM Disk which connected to Proxy and Repository. Im using proxy and repository same server because its best way to fasty copy disk to disk.

So If I resolve this issue which using storage snapshot via VM Proxy and Repository without physical connection.

Thanks.

Not sure whether I'm following you on that. In order for this functionality to work properly there must be at least one proxy having access to the storage : be it via FC or via ISCSI. Thanks.

If iSCSI is a possibility, then it may be possible to use a software iSCSI initiator within the proxy VM and not use a physical proxy.
