Using the iSCSI initiator within Veeam Backup & Replication in a VM

Last week when I outlined a few considerations about whether to install Veeam Backup & Replication as a virtual or physical machine, a follow-up conversation reminded me of an important configuration scenario. If Veeam Backup & Replication is installed on a virtual machine with an iSCSI storage processor as the production storage for vSphere, you can configure the iSCSI initiator within the guest virtual machine. This enables Veeam Backup & Replication to access the production storage for vSphere directly.

Once you configure the iSCSI initiator, you will see your production VMFS LUNs appear in the disk management snap-in of the Veeam Backup & Replication server.
