I'm the guy who got Ransomware in our network and it destroyed everything and we had to rebuild from scratch.
I've got all sorts of protections in place this time around but as 1 last line of defense, I run a monthly backup of all my VM's to a Drobo device and then I shut it down until it's time to run it again next month. I realize I stand to lose up to 1 month of data, but that's ok since I do more file level backups as well.
Let's suppose all my servers get wiped out again including the Veeam server. I then boot back up my Drobo and install Veeam on a new server. Would I be able to re-add the backup repository and re-scan it and be able to restore all the VMs to a new location? I assume there are credentials that would have to match, but I don't think that would be a problem. Would I have to have the server backup config saved to the Drobo as well?
