A proper Install

Veeam Logoby Standard_Install » Thu Jan 04, 2018 5:48 pm

Hello,

I am attempting to figure out the best route for a Veeam B&R install.

I have a psychical ESXI 5.1 host with only 1 VM guest running off of it. Unfortunately this VM is our DC, SQL, Fileshare....etc etc. Should I go the route of installing Veeam B&R on the VM server or an IT workstation on the domain. The repository would be a NAS and not be utilizing the default repository of the Veeam backup server.

an IT workstation on the domain

I'd stick to this option in order not to put additional load on already loaded VM. Thanks.

I agree with Vladimir but maybe an other suggestion. Do you have the resources available to install another VM on that host? That could be an option also.

That's a shame. Maybe do consider it for the future? I am assuming that the cost of the windows license is what is keeping you?

Anyway, I would go with Vladimir's suggestion then

Cheers
