vPower NFS questions

Post by claudiofolu »

Hello , I have a couple questions regarding vPower NFS:
Is it possible to enable a vPower NFS server on a linux repository? I think not...
So, if I choose to use a Linux server as backup repository, and want to use features like Instant VM recovery, I have to add a Windows server with the role of NFS server?

Can I use Veeam with QNAP NAS with NFS shares as repository? Or only linux ,windows servers and cifs?

Thanks

I just read it, could you explain this "Linux and CIFS based repositories do not implement vPower NFS server, and must be pointed to an existing one."
How do I point a CIFS repository to a NFS server? and how do I install a vPower NFS server? as a regular NFS server?

Thanks!

vPower NFS server is set up automatically during creating Windows backup repository. Create a Windows backup repository first and then, while creating a CIFS repository, specify the existing Windows backup repository to serve as NFS server for it.
