Many of our servers are using SAN volumes, so snapshotting those volumes from Hyper-V or VMware is not possible. We have installed the Windows File System agent on all those servers and are performing backups of the SAN volumes.
Our SAN is connected to the hosts over fibre channel.
Obviously it would be possible to connect one of our Commvault media agents to the fibre channel, present the volumes to it and then use the media agent to backup those volumes as a proxy. Is that advisable though? I can’t find any documentation on doing this...
