Backup to remote site-SimpliVity

I have a scenario whereby 2 production SimpliVIty nodes and 1 DR SimpliVity node. We are planning to direct connect 2 production SimpliVity node (for storage & federation) and 1G management network. When I configured the remote backup to DR site, will the backup traffic route through management network or Federation network?

Simplivity Backup goes via Simplivity Federation network.

So is that means the remote backup will not works since we are using direct connect for the storage & federation network on production nodes?

Not that i'm aware of. Direct connect is only supported with 2-node cluster. If you wish to add 3rd node, you must reconfigure (connect existing 2 nodes to network switch) and extend yout network to secondary site.

Maybe you should open a support ticket to HPE, just to be sure.
