Step 5. Select Location for Proxy Appliance

At the Ready step of the wizard, select an ESXi host to which the clone/virtual copy of the storage snapshot will be mounted. On the selected ESXi host, Veeam Backup & Replication will also place a proxy appliance and mount disks of the restored VM to this proxy appliance.

To specify a destination for the snapshot clone/virtual copy and proxy appliance:

  1. Click the Customize link at the bottom of the window.
  2. In the FLR Appliance Configuration window, select an ESXi host to which the snapshot clone must be mounted and on which the proxy appliance must be registered.
  3. In the Resource pool field, specify a resource pool to which you want to place the proxy appliance.
  4. In the Network section, specify an IP address and other network settings for the proxy appliance. The proxy appliance must be placed in the same network where the backup server resides.
  5. To enable FTP access to the restored file system, select the Enable FTP server on appliance check box. As a result, your users will be able to access the proxy appliance via FTP, browse the file system of the restored VM and download files on their own.
  6. If you are restoring a VM with the Novell Storage Services file system, select the Restore from Novell Storage Services (NSS) file system check box. Veeam Backup & Replication will deploy a specific proxy appliance that supports the Novell Storage Services file system.
  7. Click OK.

Step 5. Select Location for Proxy ApplianceImportant!

When choosing an ESXi host for the proxy appliance used for file-level restore from the Novell Storage Services file system, make sure that it allows running VMs with 64-bit guest OSes.
