Greetings friends, I found myself the other day with an issue I had not seen before, I will explain below the symptoms of the issue, but first let's remember what the Veeam Gateway Server is and what it does in a simple Veeam topology.
Veeam Gateway ServerWhen configuring an SMB type repository in Veeam, the following options are available:
- Automatic selection of the server as the SMB gateway proxy (i.e. the server that will host the transport component on the destination side and thus play the role of a data writer to the SMB shared resource itself).
- Select an specific server (among the managed Windows servers available in Veeam Backup & Replication) as an SMB gateway proxy.
