Replicating to DR site to more than one DataStore

Post by wksantiago » Sep 06, 2010 3:07 pm

We will be replicating to an ESX environment where we have SAN with data store pointing to fiber drives (fast) and another data store pointing to SATA drives.
We have a VM with two drives on our main production site. One drive created on data store pointing to fiber drives (fast), and the other drive created on a data store pointing to SATA drives.

We would like to know if when creating a replication job to our DR site which has the same DATA store setup. When creating this job and Veeam place the VM on the DR environment just like production with two destination Datasotres?

The reason I ask is that when restoring an entire VM I can only pick one Datastore.

Thanks,

Can't be done currently. See this thread (second page at the top):

Hello William, as of right now replication requires that all replica VM data is located on the same datastore. We are looking to enhance this in future releases. Thanks!
