  • VM backups over iSCSI network

    I have Netapp iSCSI LUNs that house my VMs at one of my sites.  Will I be able to mount these on my windows media agent and back them up over the iSCSI vlan using SAN transport method as long as I have a interface connected to my iSCSI network?  Or will all the traffic traverse my regular server vlan using the NBD transport method?

    If your Windows Media agents in these remote sites are virtual then you will not be able to use that method of backing up.

     

    If they are physical then yes you can present these LUN's to the Windows Media Agents and use SAN transport mode.

     

    DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCIMSTANCE INITIALIZE THE DISKS IN DISK MANAGEMENT!!!
