VM replication vSAN as target

Veeam Logoby NightBird » Mon Nov 21, 2016 5:44 pm

Hello,

See in Veeam B&R 9.5 release notes:
Due to a change in ESXi 6.0 Update 1, replication and quick migration to VVol datastores is
not possible with either Veeam or vSphere replication


So if I understand, it's not possible to replicate to a VMware vSAN cluster as target ?

Could a vSAN cluster be used as source for replication ?

Thanks for your feeback,
Boris

Hi Boris,
the notes says VVOLs, that have nothing to do with vSAN. You can safely use vSAN as a replication target. My entire Cloud Connect lab uses a vSAN 6.0 to receive virtual machines replica using VBR 9.5, so I can totally confirm that it works.
