hi  in your environment if you want to connect backup traffic shaping you can use seperate subnet with anothernetwork card ... create connection between Hyper-V host and Backup if the destination is seperated.. (either san NAS, DAS, Storage/tape/Mapped Drive)

either you use ethernet, SAS, Fiber... its upd to you...

all the best

For that you need a physical network.

Using network interfaces on both side and using a isolated subnet and VLAN.

Then in Veeam in Windows hosts file, Add an entry with hyper-v IP (from that isolated subnet).

This always make Veeam using that subnet.

If you use any Veeam proxy, you should also do the same process.
