Step 3. Specify Mount Server Settings

At the Mount Servers step of the wizard, specify mount server settings for published file shares.

  • If you select the Automatic selection option, Veeam Backup & Replication will automatically choose the mount server where to restore file shares. The job will use the mount server from the repository where the backup files reside. For scale-out backup repositories, Veeam Backup & Replication will use the least occupied mount server.
  • If you select the Manual selection option, you can specify which mount server to use to individually publish each file share:
  1. In the Mount servers list, select a file share for which you want to assign a mount server.
  2. Click Edit. Alternatively you can double-click the required file share in the list.
  3. In the Select mount server window, select a mount server to use to publish the chosen file share.

To quickly find a mount server, you can use the search field at the bottom of the window.

  1. Click OK to confirm selection.


Consider that data on the mounted file share may be available to the users added to the Administrators group on this mount server.
