    regarding this KB: http://kb.commvault.com/article/VMW0002

    if I have NFS v3 datastore and 10 ESX hosts I should deploy 10 proxy VMs with VSA; I can "fix" VM1 on ESX1, VM2 on ESX2 etc... but how can I be sure that all VMs on ESX1 will be backed up by proxy VM1, all VMs on ESX2 will be backed up by proxy VM2 etc... without create a subclient for every ESX host ?

    Assigning VMs to be backed up by a proxy running on the same host as the VM is done as part of our VM dispatching / proxy selection logic.



    For the specific issue that you mentioned regarding NFSv3 locking.  There is also an additional setting

    VirtualServer/SkipHotAddForNFSLock  Integer   1

    that can be used to ensure that NBD is used instead of hotadd if a proxy on the same host cannot be identified.
