I have searched a bit but I just don't have a good grasp. We have been running Veeam 6 for a while now but it was upgraded so all of the existing jobs were upgraded too. The replication job (after the upgrade to 6 from 5) always stared "Legacy Replication" job. It always worked before so I never bothered changing it. I upgraded to Veeam 6 patch 3. I deleted all of my jobs to recreate them. The backup jobs seemed straight forward. We have 2 NAS boxes where we backup all VM's every other night to every other NAS box. Backing up to NAS on LAN so reverse incremental, LAN target, VSS, etc... When re-creating the replication job I was a bit confused.
We have an HA cluster with 2 hosts. 2 iSCSI boxes attached to both hosts. One for main VM's to run, one in a vault where we send the replications every Sunday at same physical site. I was surprised to see that the default replication storage location when configuring the replication job was the 2nd iSCSI by default which is where I want it to go... Built in logic to choose the best location? Anyway, I was asked a question where I want to store my metadata for the replication job. I had only 3 choices. The 2 backup NAS repositories, and the Veeam C: drive repository. I chose C: Veeam server repository because I didn't know what else to do.
There are 10 VM's split (50/50) between 2 ESXi 4.1 hosts in a HA cluster.
What should I do here?
How much metadata is there? (c: drive consumption)
Did I do the right thing?
