Replica from Backup Copy Job

Veeam Logoby SBeel » Wed Apr 11, 2018 3:00 pm

Hi,

I'm looking for some advice on configuring our offsite replication jobs.

From our main office we have a VBR server doing local backups. For our D/R strategy, I am thinking of creating a backup copy job that sends the data over to our D/R site, and then creating replication jobs on a VBR server in the D/R site, using the backup data from the backup copy job as the source. Is this a recommended configuration? My main question is, how do I tell the replication job when to start? Do I just use a manual schedule based around when the copy job should finish? Is there a better way of doing this?

Thanks in advance for you help.

It's OK to have replication job use backup copy data as its source.

RPO won't be that great, but some of our customers are using this strategy and quite happy with it.

My main question is, how do I tell the replication job when to start?

Estimate approximate time when backup copy job typically ends, add some overhead (an hour or so) and set it as a replication job start time.

Is there a better way of doing this?

Potentially you can set a script (that executes a replication job) as a post backup job activity. This way, once the backup copy sync interval expires, post-activity will trigger replication job.
