ESXi & Veeam

We have rolled out essentials basic with one VM server.  I have veeam B&R v5 which was going to be used a a backup tool for the guests on the VM server.
I have a backup job on the veeam server (a VM guest) but how do i get the physical backups onto an external drive, mapped drive or share off the VM server?

Also i cant seem to find out much on the SUrebackup - what is this for?

Surebackup is an automated verification process for your backups it will power on a vm from you backup file and run scripted tests to make sure the backup is good

when you set the backup path with Veeam you can use a UNC path to point it to another location. If you need to run the backups to the local drive first and "vault" them to other media you can use reverse incrementals and create a script copy the .vbk only to your alternate media. Make sure the script runs at a time the backup isn't active as the file will be locked.

I am not sure what you are asking. Is this while you are creating the proxy for the virtual lab? that is what it uses to allow you to connect into VMs that you restore to the virtual lab which is where sure backup restores the VMs when it is vaildating the backup

You could use USB Passthru' with the VM to connect an External USB hard disk to the host ESX server.

or create a Backup Job to Backup to a Physical Computer Network Share. (which is on a USB hard drive).

amwinsit:  yes. how and why does the vlab create an auto ip which isnt part of dhcp?

it has to have private communication so that the restored VM doesn't conflict with the existing VM. For example you can restore AD and Exchange servers to the VLab so you can restore public folders then pull the data through the proxy
