Chain Replication Local & Remote WAN

Post by nehalem »

Hello team,

My scenario is to double replicate some VMs without having the real production machines in open snapshot for a long time.
So i need to know if there is a way to control these two jobs serial.

Eg. i have the master VM_SQL and i have a job to replicate it local to a local datastore on my production
this creates an VM_SQL_replica in my production vcenter invenotory and takes about 1hour to resync

Then i need a second job to replicate to VM_SQL_replica to remote WAN Esx server on my DR Site but this can long about 29Hours

The question is HOW can i schedule these jobs to NEVER run together but only one after each other?
I need my WAN Job to start when the LOCAL finishes.

As i can see i cannot make a job selecting both machines with different Target Hosts/Datastores so if there is a command or something i want to control them serial because the second wan job lasts more than one whole day.

Best Regards

Hello Kiriakos,

You can schedule your replication jobs with PowerShell scripts.

Here you go a useful topic with more information: Veeam Backup v4 wait command (nevermind the title)

Please also note that in order to replicate a replicated VM, you should disable CBT in the advanced settings.

Hope this helps!

I been doing this for a year, always works. No need to istall anything, PS is istalled with Veeam. This way my offsite job doesnt start until the onsite job is done.
