At the Mount Server step of the wizard, specify settings for the mount server that you plan to use for file-level and application items restore.
- From the Mount Server list, select a server that you want to use as a mount server. The mount server is required for file-level and application items restore. During the restore process, Veeam Backup & Replication will mount the VM disks from the backup file residing on the backup repository to the mount server. As a result, VM data will not have travel over the network, which will reduce the load on the network and speed up the restore process. For more information, see Mount Server.
The Mount Server list contains only Microsoft Windows servers that are added to the backup infrastructure. If the server is not added to the backup infrastructure yet, select Add server at the bottom of the list to open the New Windows Server wizard. For more information, see Adding Microsoft Windows Servers.
- To make the backup repository accessible by the Veeam vPower NFS Service, select the Enable vPower NFS server on the mount server check box. Veeam Backup & Replication will enable the vPower NFS Service on the mount server you have selected.
- In the Folder field, specify a folder that will be used as a vPower NFS root folder. For more information, see Veeam vPower NFS Service.
- To customize network ports used by the vPower NFS Service, click Ports. By default, the vPower NFS Service uses the following ports:
- Mount port: 1058
- vPower NFS port: 2049
Do not enable Microsoft Windows NFS services on the machine where you install the Veeam vPower NFS Service. If Microsoft NFS services and Veeam vPower NFS Service are enabled on the same machine, both services may fail to work correctly.
