From testing, it will take about 4 days to replicate the VM to the remote site, so this will (presumably) block the Veeam Backup from running for about 4 days - is my understanding correct?
Will using the Backup as a seed for the initial replication reduce the amount of time the Replication job needs to have control of the PROD VM and hence lessen the impact on the Backup?
Can I be sure that there will be no ill effects from the replication interfering with the backup job and the Application VM will run happily throughout and also that the Backup will then sort itself out automatically and recommence on it's normal schedule once the replication completes?
Or is the replication snapshot only created on the PROD VM after the seeding from backup has completed whilst the final Replication is done to bring the Replica in sync with PROD?
Will I still be able to do this and seed the replica from the backup of the PROD vm that is located at the PROD site?
