I have several installations (also at customer location) of VMWare B&R now and everything and everything is working fine with the occasional glitch of course
So, now is the first time I'm going to use the replication feature.
I have setup a replication job and it seems to be working okay, but I would like some more background info on all the files that are created.
More specifcally, I was wondering the following:
I have server A and B, and a seperate backupserver running Veeam. I have a job that replicates a VM from A to B every hour and maintains 48 rollback-points (so 2 days).
On server B, I have the following files in the target folder (besides the NVRAM, VMX, VMXF and LOG files):
- Two VBK files, one is 0,43 KB the other is 56.832 KB (and has a -s001 at the end of the filename).
- A whole lot of VRB files, in pairs, one 0,43 KB and the other (with -s001) have sizes of around 130.000 KB
- A VMDK file, the actual disk, size is 157.286.400 KB
- Another VMDK with the suffix _working, size is the same: 157.286.400 KB
Question 2: If a replication session is in progress and the source server fails completely at that time, which files would have Veeam have had open at that time, and would the backups (replica's actually) be in a consistent state, ready to be powered on?
A lot of questions but since this is very critical (we're using replication on a very critical VM obviously) I really want to understand everything there is to it before I actually need this knowledge
