We have not yet moved production servers to the second site. Our existing Veeam environment is a physical server running the Veeam Backup service, enterprise manager, and proxy, and an additional virtual machine running as a second proxy.
My plan was to set up one physical server and one virtual server at the second location to act as simple proxies, with the physical doing most of the work.
My concern is that in a DR event where we lose the first site, backups wouldn’t run at the second site.
What would be the best way to mitigate this risk? Will we need to have a Veeam server at each site (and lose the single pane of glass), or is it possible to quickly recreate the Veeam server at the second site and not have to rebuild the jobs? Are there other solutions that I haven’t thought of?

Ed, starting from v6.5 Veeam B&R provides the ability to perform backup of its configuration by retrieving all configuration data from its SQL database. So, in case of disaster, all you need to do is just re-install Veeam B&R and import configuration from backup including all the jobs, which is really fast.ekranz wrote:Will we need to have a Veeam server at each site (and lose the single pane of glass), or is it possible to quickly recreate the Veeam server at the second site and not have to rebuild the jobs?
