Hi, I've a doubt regarding HPE StoreOnce as a Veeam Backup Repository and the Replication feature native from the HPE product. Lets assume I'm backing up my infrastructure to a StoreOnce on my main site and in the 2nd location I've a second StoreOnce (no other servers nor storage). Both sites are connected with Fibre (LAN).
I suppose that StoreOnce Replications should be more efficient than using Veeam Backup Copy Job (is it???) so how will Veeam handle the 2nd StoreOnce ? Can I recover directly from the 2nd StoreOnce with Veeam form the main site (if hypothetically my 1st storeonce crashed and I had problems with my VM's and needed to restore data)

So I can "pick up" my 2nd StoreOnce (that has the content replicated from my 1st StoreOnce natively), bring it to my main Datacenter, connect it, present it to my Veeam Server, scan it and recover my VM's to my production storage?

Just to make sure we're on the same page, am I right understanding that you're talking about CIFS repository on StoreOnce and native StoreOnce replication? In this case yes, you can present the secondary device, rescan it, and perform restores.

You would be able to restore, however, not sure how you're going to trigger Catalyst Copy, since Veeam B&R doesn't currently support it and Catalyst Store cannot be replicated via StoreOnce GUI either, as far as I know.

Did you ever confirm that VEEAM can't trigger nor observer StoreOnce Catalyst replication? Also, I have read that StoreOnce Catalyst replication can't happen without HP Protect. Do you know if this is true as well?
