Considerations and Limitations

General Limitations As documented in Object Storage Repository > Considerations and Limitations: Object storage gateway appliances used to store backup data, emulating disk or CIFS/NFS, iSCSI/FC/SAS are not supported if the backup data is offloaded to object storage and is no longer stored directly on the appliance.
