Dear Commvault Community,
I have a question reg. Dedicated Backup for VMware.
in the Media Agent, I have one primary network interface with the IP and we created secondary one to be used for the VMware Backup, so Culd You tell how we can configure it ?
we tried to use: Dedicated Backup Network (commvault.com) but its not working.

Assuming you are using NBD backups, the only way to ‘force’ it to backup over a specific network is to ensure that the address of the ESXi host resolves to the dedicated network IP you are trying to use.
When the backup starts, Commvault will ask vCenter for the hostname of the ESXi server, and whatever that hostname is, ensure it resolves to the IP address on the dedicated network.
For example, if your backup network is 10.x.x.x, use host files to ensure your ESXi server resolves to a 10.x.x.x address. There is no way to force commvault to access an ESXi host over a specific network - DIPs only apply for commvault to commvault traffic, not commvault to VMware traffic
