A mount operations can be created either on Microsoft Windows or Linux machines according to the following:
- To create a mount point on Microsoft Windows machines, Veeam Backup & Replication utilizes iSCSI protocol. The remote machine (the original VM) or the staging server acts as an iSCSI initiator. The machine on which the Veeam Explorer is running acts as an iSCSI target. The iSCSI mount point is non-persistent — it is created only for the duration of the restore process.
- To create a mount point on Linux VMs (for Oracle running on Linux), Veeam Backup & Replication uses fuse.
