I dont know what happens the above thread that I created seems to have disappeared?
Anyway, my other issue was moving virtual machines from one host to another, both running standalone installations of veeam. And I wanted to know if I could have the new host pick up the existing backup set from the repository rather than running the backups from scratch.
based on what you said above, this is what I have done -
moved the virtual machine from host 1 to host 2.
on host 2, added the repository that was being used by host 1. Right clicked on the repository and clicked on rescan and then it imported the existing backup sets that it found.
Then I created a backup job on server 2 for the virtual machine that I had just moved, and I clicked on map and then I browse to the backup set that was created when the vm was on server 1.
then I ran the backup.
the backup took quite some time still so I am not sure if it recognised the existing backups or not.
is that the correct way to do it?
