Hello. I am trying to create an offsite backup of a VM from an existing backup.
The problem is that the target repository offsite doesn't seem to be populating completely, or it's only transmitting the last piece of the chain. This would make it useless in the event that the main environment was lost and I had to restore from the offsite copy.
Is there something I could be missing? Also I should point out that the VM is too large for the copy interval (first run) due to bandwidth. I got a warning that said "initial copy did not complete, and will resume on the next copy interval." It did run again and "complete" - but what ended up in the remote repository is way too small for a full restore.
I have just started a restore on the remote host to verify, and it is actually restoring from the main repository, over the network at 1MB/s, this should not be happening. I told it to use the offsite repository, but it must know that it's incomplete so it's actually restoring from the main one.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions or help.
