Yes, it would be supported. You can install as many Veeam backup instances as you need and run them against the same source hosts. Thanks!

In that post I have asked how I should operate two separate Hyper-V servers in terms of Veeam and backup strategy - should I be purchasing another copy of veeam for the second server, or can the first server back up the second remotely?
