I'm trying to figure out how to design my existing Backup Exec 2010 environment to backup my Hyper-V VM's that are sitting on a CSV volume out on my storage unit.
We currently have two Hyper-V nodes in a Hyper-V cluster, that are currently connected directly to the iSCSI SAN via Cat 6 cables. (I'm planning on introducing switches soon, instead of direct attaching). We have a Dell MD3200i SAN. We're using a single CSV volume to store the VM's, and a quorum/witness disk as well.
My Backup Exec server is on a seperate server, that is not part of the cluster, nor does it connect to the storage unit in any way.
I know Backup Exec 2010 has a Hyper-V agent.
My questions are concerning implementation/design of the backup.
Does the Backup Exec server need access to the SAN, either via the iSCSI switch or directly to one of the iSCSI ports on the SAN? Or as long as it's on the same network as the nodes with the agents, am I ok?
Do I need to buy 2 Hyper-V agents, or do I buy one agent and will that let me backup all of the VM's on the CSV.
I just seem to be a little lost on how to make sure my Backup Exec server can backup the VM's hosted on the nodes (using Cluster Shared Volumes) but sitting on the SAN.
