Step 6. Select Networking Mode

At the Networking step of the wizard, select the type of network settings configuration. The virtual lab configuration depends on objects that you plan to verify in the virtual lab:

Selecting Networking Mode for Verifying Backups

Veeam Backup & Replication offers two networking modes for the virtual lab in which VMs from backups can be verified:

If you select the Advanced single-host option, the New Virtual Lab wizard will include additional steps for customizing network settings.

Step 6. Select Networking Mode Note:

You can also verify VM backups in Advanced Multi-Host virtual labs with DVS. This scenario can be helpful if you want to test VM backups and replicas in the same virtual lab or want to add verified VM backups and replicas to the same SureBackup job.
For more information, see Advanced Multi-Host Virtual Labs.

Step 6. Select Networking Mode 

Selecting Networking Mode for Verifying Replicas

Veeam Backup & Replication offers three networking modes for the virtual lab in which VM replicas are verified:

If you select the Advanced multi-host option, click Choose and select the necessary DVS in your virtual environment. Note that Veeam Backup & Replication does not configure a DVS automatically: you must configure it beforehand.

If the Advanced single-host or Advanced multi-host option is selected, the New Virtual Lab wizard will include additional steps for customizing network settings.

Step 6. Select Networking Mode Important!

For every isolated network in the virtual lab, Veeam Backup & Replication adds a new port group to the DVS. If you use a production DVS, you must isolate port groups created with Veeam Backup & Replication from the production environment. For more information, see Isolated Networks on DVS.

Step 6. Select Networking Mode 

Selecting Network Mode for Verifying VMs on Storage Snapshots

For verifying VMs from storage snapshots, you can select any networking mode.
