We have a virtual environment with three ESX servers and one Virtual Center server. The ESX Servers are connected to a SAN. We are using VCB together with the Backup Exec integration to take image level backups of these virtual machines. The problem is that some of the machines are stored on the SAN and some on the ESX servers (locally). This cause the backup to fail for the machines stored on the local disks. (Perfectly normal).
I was wondering if there is any option to enable both SAN and NBD transport mode. Thus, when SAN is not available then use network instead.
Something like this: TRANSPORT_MODE="san" and "nbd";
Is there anyway of doing this?
