Hi We have two Data Domain appliances, one local and one in DR site. What is the best proctice for replicating backup to secondary DD, should DD replication be used or backup copy job? If DD replication how does backup server know about backups on secondary DD and how do I recover from there?
Veeam is version 9.5. DDOS is version 5.6. Using DDBOOST.

Hi, we recommend using Backup Copy job whenever possible since storage-based replication does not validate data for consistency, nor Veeam will be aware of the presence of backups on other storage systems without you importing those backups manually or via PowerShell. Thanks!

You just need to rescan the repo configured for the secondary appliance. You could create a PowerShell script to do this and configure the script to run periodically in order to pick up newly copied backup files.
