Veeam SAN transport and NWT

Hey Everyone,

 

Just want to confirm something so I don't nuke my environment.

 

I'm trying to setup Veeam (9.0) to backup my VMware environment direct from SAN (SAN transport mode). I've run some tests on some test volumes and everything appears fine.

 

I am using a physical 2012R2 windows server (Veeam), and I installed the Nimble Windows toolkit. It can see the VMware volumes, but I just want to make sure it doesn't try to online or automount the volumes in Windows (thereby nuking the VMware volume).

 

I have gone into diskpart and set the SAN policy to offline and automount to disable. Is there anything else I should be looking out for?
