I would love to piggyback off of this to ensure that I am understanding this situation correctly.
Thanks Mike for making the post and giving me some insight on my current setup.
I have my physical Veeam Backup Server at Site B (in my datacenter) which runs all jobs for both of my sites, A & B.
I use Hyper-V hosts as the backup proxies at Site A and also at Site B.
At Site A (HQ) I have a physical server that I use as a repository and this repository is available on the Veeam Backup Server at Site B (obviously).
(This physical server at Site A also has Veeam installed and can see Site B repository and WAN Accelerator but it has no jobs configured.)
I run Backup jobs during the day and Backup Copy jobs during the night using WAN Accelerators (physical repository server at Site A & Veeam Backup Server at Site B).
My Dell PowerVault TL2000, however, is at Site A.
If I am understanding this thread correctly, the Dell PowerVault TL2000 should really be at Site B?
Would I be able to utilize the physical repository server at Site A (which has Veeam installed already but not in use) to somehow do my monthly backups to tape?
Or should I just move the Dell PowerVault TL2000 to the datacenter?
I have tried a tape job from Site B and it always fails due to network conditions. I also think in this case it is copying the data back to Site A and writing it to tape, which is extremely a bad idea.
