Looks something like this:
Webserver (Off, replica)
Veeamserver (Off, replica)
Fileserver (Off, replica)
Printserver (Off, replica)
If I add both Hosts to Veeam and just tell it to backup all machines it will backup every machine twice (the running one and the replica that's turned off). I know this will not really take up space since it should be able to deduplicate everything - but it takes longer and seems redundant.
I would like to know if there is a way to tell Veeam: Only backup the primary/currently active copies - not the replica.
Right now I'm selecting each machine on each host that is the primary one in the backup job manually. But that means I have to add every new machine in the future and/or adjust the job if I ever choose that another server should be the primary one.
Due to company politics I can't use Veeam Replication has to be native Hyper-V (don't ask...).

As far as I am aware, this cannot be achieved through the UI. I am thinking of a way to do this through SCVMM with tags (but then you need SCVMM) or with folders (if that is arranged like that). If not, I would consider using PowerShell to populate your jobs by first creating a list of the VMs that are running and populate as such.
