We have a client who is moving machines from Hyper-V to VMware. They will be purchasing a full license of Veeam for VMware, but not for Hyper-V since it will not be used after migration but first need to consolidate systems so they can fit new ones. So we need to put as many VMs on as few hosts as possible. Right now we need to move a domain controller VM from one hyper-v to another and i wanted to see if Veeam zip can do this.
The big question is if I use Veeam ZIP to back it up from one host and then restore to another - will it trigger any kind of AD restore mechanisms or will it just copy the files from one host to another this way without causing any issues?
The VM is powered off before backup is taken.
