Veeam Backup of Hyper V replicas

Veeam Logoby jfried81 » Mon Apr 03, 2017 6:32 pm


I want to combine Hyper V replica and Veeam Backup. Is it possible to do the backup on the replicated site (and not on the production site)? How has this to be configured?

You can add the Hyper-v host with the replica's on into Veeam Backup & Replication. Afterwards you can create a backup job which will backup these replicas.

And I note if you fail over the Hyper-V Veeam just keeps on working backing up either the actual of replicated version of the VM on the host. Nice!

[MERGED] Backup from Hyper-V Replica

Veeam Logoby sarapinho » Tue Jul 04, 2017 7:00 pm

Hi there,

We have 2 sites using Hyper-V 2012 and we are using Hyper-V Replica feature, to replicate VMs from the production site to DR.

At the moment, we would like to license only the DR site with Veeam and backup from the Hyper-V Replica VMs, because of higher costs in the production site (like more licenses, new storage, etc…)

In VMware we need to disable CBT and incremental backups take a longer time to finish, but what about Hyper-V? We have the same problem or any other observation?

Thank you.

Hi Sarapinho,

That will work, and we haven't received any reports regarding problems as of yet.
