I'm testing Veeam Replication solution before put it to the production.
The following configuration used:
ESXi ---(LAN)--- ESXi
Both ESXi have local storage only.
The replication and failover scenario follows:
On ESXi there is a virtual machine with Veeam Backup & Replication (Veeam Backup Console).
On Veeam Backup Console created and started a Replication Job for replication virtual machines
from ESXi to ESXi.
So if ESXi will be crashed (with all data lost) then it should be possible to start saved replicas
User Guide says:
"Important! If possible, avoid powering on a replica manually in case its original has failed. Use the Perform failover
option in the Restore wizard instead. Otherwise, the subsequent replication sessions will be failing."
But I can't use Restore wizard on ESXi because it was crashed.
I tried to install new Veeam Backup Console on ESXi but have no ideas how to use it for Restore
because Restore wizard wants a Replication Job.
Is it possible to perform failover a virtual machine to its replica w/o original Replication Job?
With powering on a replica manually I can start only latest replica.
Is it possible to start not only latest replica?
