I am just getting to grips with Veeam and setting up Direct SAN access. I have Veeam running in a VM on 2008r2 and my VMFS datastores are presented to the VM, automount has been disabled, the volumes are 'online'. Should they be in 'offline' mode?
But I rescan the server and the repositories in Veeam, but I don't think Veeam sees them? I have set my proxies to use SAN only and they start using [san] it then go to [nbd] even though I have told it not to revert to network.
Hard Disk 1 [san] then
Hard Disk 1 [nbd]
When I add new repository, select the windows server and click populate I see C: and E: but not the VMFS volumes? MMC console sees the luns and I have put them in online mode, and that's it. So the Windows VM defo sees the luns.
They are iSCSI luns from an old IBM DS3300 SAN
Am I correct in that presenting the VMFS luns to the windows Veeam backup proxy is the way to go to use Direct SAN properly? I have been following the links below:
What am I missing? I have attached screenshots, any help helping me understand this would be greatly appreciated !
