Integration Settings

You can specify storage integration settings for the job managed by backup server.

Keep in mind that storage integration settings are unavailable if you work with protection group for cloud machines.

To specify storage integration settings for the backup job:

  1. At the Storage step of the wizard, click Advanced.
  2. Click the Integration tab.
  3. If you select the Enable backup from storage snapshots check box, Veeam Backup & Replication will use native storage snapshots to create Veeam Agent backups. To learn more about storage snapshots support, see Storage Snapshots Support.
  4. To transfer a snapshot from storage to the target repository, Veeam Backup & Replication uses off-host backup proxies. You can allow Veeam Backup & Replication to use any suitable backup proxies or you can select specific backup proxies. To learn more, see Selecting Off-Host Backup Proxy.
  5. If Veeam Backup & Replication fails to create a storage snapshot or backup proxy is unavailable, you can fail over to the regular backup scenario that uses the software VSS provider. To do this, select the Failover to on-host backup agent check box.

To learn more about regular backup scenario, see the How Backup Works section in the Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows User Guide.

If you use the NetApp Element storage system and you have 4 or more backup proxies set in your Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure, you cannot use automatic selection. You must manually select up to 3 backup proxies.


Keep in mind that Veeam Backup & Replication displays only those backup proxies that run Microsoft Windows Server OS. For more information about backup proxy requirements, see Storage Snapshots Support.
