I have seen similar questions on the forums but not my exact one. I would like to know if the following is possible.
leveraging Nimble integration with 9.5, is it possible to have a replication job that will initiate snapshot on the source SAN, replicate it to the target SAN and then present a replica from the snapshot. I realise generational recovery would result in multiple SAN based snapshots in this scenario and probably multiple SAN snapshots mounted as data stores. Just wondering if its possible? Its the same mechanism offsite backup job uses.
If that's not possible, can this mechanism be leveraged to create a copy of the VM from the SAN snapshot at the target site into an existing datastore (like traditional Veeam replication job) and keep generational recovery points?
