Backup one VMWare Guest with 2 seperate Veeam Servers?

Post by kevin_cambs_uk » Jan 06, 2015 1:28 pm

Is it possible?

I have a large guest running on VMware, but at the weekend, I want to back it up off site using another Veeam Server.

In the week, the normal Primary Veeam Server will run the backup and this is locally stored, but can I run another backup against this guest?

How will the CBT know who has backed up what blocks or is it much cleverer than that?

Thanks again people,

Kevin

This is covered in the sticky FAQ topic.

Thanks for that, just ready it as below...

Q: Will the changed block tracking "break" if I backup and replicate the same VM? Or, if I backup the same VM with different jobs, or from different backup servers, or with different backup products?
A: There will be no issues, as changed block tracking is designed to handle such usage scenarios.

All I can say is that is very clever !

Great product.

Thanks

Yes, just make sure jobs performed by different Veeam B&R instances do not overlap, to avoid possible issues.
