Hi - I'm feeling a little dumb here. Just playing with 6 for the first weekend.
I've gotten across the WAN replication working with compression, and the across the wire is working fine. It's definately faster than 5.
I can't get Seeding or Replica Mapping working, no matter what I try.
My scenario: taking a drive with Veeam 5 backups to my remote location, and trying to setup either Seeding or Replica mapping in Version 6.
When I attempt to seed, I put the backup in the remote repository, and I can even 'import' it just fine. Rescan the Repository. Attempt replication job. Fails every time (on multiple VMs) with "vm not found in backup for initial sync". Veeam has no problem finding the remote repository - it just won't 'find' the backup.
When I attempt to restore the guest into my remote ESXi, register it, and do replica mapping - it 'attempts', but sits there at 0% forever. Now, it doesn't 'detect' my replica on the remote ESXi (which i'm thinking is a danger sign), so I manually map it. In the logs, it gives an error like 'can't find vm' also.
Am I missing something? I've read the docs, and it seems like I'm doing it right. The only thing that I can't think of is that I'm working with Version 5 VBK files. But, the docs say that 'should' work for Version 6 replica mapping.
If anyone sees anything glaring that I'm missing, please comment.
