As I deploy the Enterprise manager I realized that I could manage all 3 backup servers from one Enterprise Manager. But then I as I painstakingly installed U3 on every server, I started to wonder and realize, do I even need 3 backup server installs?
Can I have one central backup server, and just a repository installation at each location? (I don't actually want to transfer any backups across the vpn).
If this is possible, will I still be able to use Instant Restore at the remote locations? (Booting the Hyper-V at each remote location on the local BDR server, even though I don't have a full Veeam Backup Server installed there? ). What about sure backup and all that?
I hope this all makes sense. Please let me know ASAP. We have this situation at a few customers and I feel like I might be giving myself alot of extra work in the current setup.

Now, the VBR server in HQ will be the command and control. So some data (commands/ metadata) will be sent over the VPN but the actual backup will remain local (if jobs are configured to the right repository and use data movers in their respective sites). For restore, same thing. VBR will be Command and Control, but the actual "work" and data movement is being done at remote1 or remote2.
While I explain it here (or at least I try, feel free to disagree ) as simple as possible, it does require some planning and putting the right components at the remote1 and remote2 site (but all components still can run on 1 single VM, again depending on size/ setup etc...)
Hope it helps
