what ethernet port does xsibackup use for NAS backups

hi all,

what ethernet port does xsibackup use to perform doing the backups to my NAS drive

my NAS drive is 10gig but my esxi hosts are 1gig (management port) but all the VLANs are 10gig trunk (all the vms)

so does the backup run over the management port or the vlan trunk port?

thanks,
rob

Re: what ethernet port does xsibackup use for NAS backups

(c)XSIBackup is agnostic of the IP routing and any other IP config. It just uses the TCP/IP stack to send the data to the destination IP.
You can find information on how to configure static routes in this VMWare document:
https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/2001426

Still, the best way to make sure that your data is using he hardware you want is setting a dedicated network for backup. Use a different subnet for your NAS and backup NIC and that way you'll be sure that your data is going through the NIC you want in an easy way.
