Then, specify the new repository as a target for your job and map it to the copied backup files - starting from the next run all synthetic backup activity will occur on the repository in the remote site.

stevil wrote:reading another thread backup using WAN storrage and synthetic full question it seems as though the answer is to use Linux as a target at the remote end. The agent does all the hard work converting the synthetic backups. I've yet to try this, but it seems to be the answer, assuming you have linux skills. the thread also mentions that this will be available on Windows at some point (!)

To sum up:
On production site:
- Veeam has been installed
- A incremental backup job with full synthetic has been created and launched -> 1 vbk file created
- The backup job is launched one more time -> 1 vbi file created
On DR site:
- A DR repository has been created (Veeam Transport service installed on remote computer)
- vbm, vbk and vib files have been copied from production repository to DR repository
- DR repository has been rescanned -> backup imported
- A new job has been created: same source VM, DR repository, incremental with full synthetic, mapped to DR repository
A great backup solution with minimum bandwidth consumption and local and remote full (synthetic) backups.
Thank you all.
