Setup Backup Veeam Server that autom. jumps

Post by flavor4real »


Is there a way to setup a 2nd Veeam Backup Server that would automatically start and run backup jobs IF the main Veeam Backup Server has a malfunction?

I understand that we can not share a veeam database between veeam backup servers, so each Veeam Backup Server will have it's own database. Is it logical and BBP to have a 2nd. Veeam server, setup with the identical Backup job/ name/ setting (as the main Server). In the scenario, where the main server crashes for whatever reason, we could detach the storage drives and add them to the 2nd Veeam server,and continue to backup until the main Veeam Server is rebuild/ ready.

Hello, no this is not possible today. But something similar to this will be possible in v6. Thanks.
