This article covers two most popular scenarios of adding an SMB 3.0 repository to Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365
Note: If the SMB 3.0 share is a Windows-based shared folder, then it is recommended to add the server it’s based on as a proxy and connect the same storage as a directly attached disk.
SMB repository is considered as experimental support in the current version.
If a storage device supports both SMB 3.0 and iSCSI protocol, the best practice would be to use iSCSI due to its use of Disk Queue, which acts as a buffer space for data to land on before being sent off to disk.
In this example, we will use a Synology appliance, but the same method should work for any standalone device that supports Microsoft Active Directory and its computer groups.
In this scenario, we will use the Synology appliance as an example, but the same method would work for any storage appliance that supports the iSCSI protocol.
