Physical Server Backup With Several B&R Consoles

Post by nitramd » Jan 11, 2018 10:08 pm

Hypothetical scenario

Software
B&R 9.5U3
VAW 2.1

Backup Servers
B&R console 1: performs forward incrementals with weekly synthetic full backups, storing the data on a NAS

B&R console 2: performs weekly active full backups, then copies data to tape


Is it possible to back up physical machines with two different B&R consoles with the information provided above?

Hello nitramd,
It's not possible to backup physical computer with 2 Veeam Backup Servers.
Could you provide the use case?
Thanks!

Hi Shestakov.

Thanks for your reply.

Use case: being able to create a weekly, full active backup of all physical machines and putting the data on tape; this is in addition to the daily incremental backups. In short, this would provide an air gapped solution.

You can accomplish the goal with agent backup policy and backup to tape job on a single backup server. It will not require several additional full backups.
