Oh... Foggy, are you sure ? Because after long discussion with support about this, nobody seemed aware of this fonctionnality.
And, unless I'm mistaken, there's no reference about this in documentation. Right ?

But I confirm that in my environment, Luns do not turn on write mode before restoration.

Yes, Veeam B&R issues a command to switch readonly attribute for the target LUN to false prior actual restore.

Well, I'll contact the support again to clarify this. Thanks for your help.

Did you hear anything further on this? I just had the same thing happen to me where my proxy is Direct SAN connected with volumes assigned the Read Only attribute.
When doing the restore it defaulted to NBD instead of SAN.

I am curious to know if what foggy said is true? I am running v9 Update 1.

This question appears to have been discussed outside of the provided case, so we cannot check it unfortunately.

I am curious to know if what foggy said is true? I am running v9 Update 1.

It is supposed to work the way Alexander's described it, if that doesn't happen, kindly, reach our support team directly.

Thanks.

I do have the same problem. Veeam B&R 9.5 is not using SAN-Mode for restore.

Are you restoring thin disks by any chance?
