Is it possible to use a Media Agent proxy for Intellisnap backup operations?

Although I configure a proxy in the settings of the subclient, the backup continues to use the MongoDB nodes to take snapshots, instead the proxy configured.

The storage is a NetApp.

Hi Gabriele,


The Use Proxy option under the Intellisnap Tab will be used to tell the Backup Copy Process which Computer to Mount the Snapshot to.  

There is an option to use a Remote MA for Snap Operations.  This will allow you to use another MA to send the API requests to the Array for Snap Operations. 


Remote Snap MA Operations:


NetApp Support for Remote MA Operations looks to be available from 11.25 and onwards
