Availability for the Always-On Enterprise
Hello All, I'm a bit new to Veeam (first post) was just looking for some advice regarding best practises for health checks on backup copy jobs. Here's my situation.
- 20 jobs
- 14-30 Restore points online
- Incremental w Synthetic fulls every Saturday
- Encryption enabled
- NTFS Repository
- Backup jobs verified w surebackup
- Copy job runs nightly
Do I need to schedule health checks on the copy job as well? I recall reading it wasn't required since they recalculate crc values at the beginning of the sync. If I should run health checks how should I schedule them in relation to the synthetic fulls?
Any input is appreciated.

Yes, it is recommended to schedule periodic (monthly is ok) health checks to verify whether the latest restore point on target repository is valid. Since health check is performed at the beginning of the job, it is not affected by synthetic full. But you can schedule them at different days to avoid extremely long job runs.
