VSAN Restore requirements

Hi, are there any specific restore requirements or procedures when restoring to a VMware VSAN datastore (unlike a regular SAN or NAS datastore)?

Regards

Hi vsan-tech and welcome to the community.

There are no specific requirements or procedures, you can safely use vSAN as a target for restore, like any other shared storage.
Just to make sure we are on the same page: can you elaborate a bit more on what requirements you're after?

Please review existing discussion Using VSAN in production as it can be useful as well.

Thanks!

Ok thanks. I've worked with VSAN for ages but not with Veeam B&R and have just started playing around with it. Can't do a restore to my VSAN datastore but it went just fine to my NFS datastore so that's why I asked. I'll poke around som more.

What's the error message when you're using vSAN as a restore target?

"Error Restore job failed Error: Permission to perform this operation was denied"
Info [VimApi] Create directory, datastore ref "datastore-120294", directory name "VM_restored"
<01> Error <NoPermissionFault xmlns="urn:vim25" xsi:type="NoPermission"

Permissions are identical for NFS and vSAN datastores. The problem seem to be related to creating the top-level folder.

Oh, ok! Yes, there might be a different set of permissions required. I thought that you have an error message unrelated to the security model.
