Replication & Backup on same host?

Veeam Logoby 3cPo » Fri Jun 23, 2017 5:01 pm

I currently have a 1 physical VMware host (Host A), running 3 Windows server VM's.

I would like to do the following:
Add a second physical VMware host (Host B)
Install Veeam as a VM on Host B
Backup all of Host A's VMs to Host B storage

My question is, can I then also replicate Host A VM's to Host B? or do I need to add a Host C?

Hello,

Not sure I fully understand your question, but if your question is whether you can replicate VMs from host A to host B, then yes, you can do that with the same backup server (no need to install new Veeam backup server).

Thank you!

Backup all of Host A's VMs to Host B storage

Be do not recommend such approach due to these considerations.
