Is it possible to populate a custom attribute of AD with the Replication Job name or somehow to identity that a vm is replicated copy at a glance?
In my case I'm migrating from SRM+VR to Veeam B&R 9.5u2 based replicas.
My concern is:
- With SRM I was seeing replicated VMs as "ghosts" (placeholders) ready to be activated by SRM. I could not accidentally power such replicated VMs
- With Veeam B&R, replicated VMs could be accidentally powered on. A possible solution is to append prefix or suffix like default _replica. But I don't like this solution as this is not being renamed in case of failover (Why not? ->feature req). However I'd like to use a custom attribute, or tag, to identify virtual machines that shouldn't be switched on. As I have a mapping 1-1 across datacenters, I don't even like to put all the VMs under a folder tree (i.e. replicated vms).
Any suggestion? Possible to implement custom attributes for replicated VMs? Or something similar to "ghost VMs"? Or a warning, when I try to power on such replicas like "Warning: this VM is being managed by Veeam server xxx".
