We have VMWare infrastructure and version 6.7 installed. We have our SQL server and Veeam server.
We have a Dell PowerEdge R640 ESX host I have an external hard disk USB3 hardisk and I have plugged it into ESX host 2.
Now I would like to map the external hard disk to the Veeam server so that on the Veeam console,  I can click Export Backup  – select the SQL server VM and point to the mapped external hard disk to backup.
