i'm in the process of evaluate veeam as a replication engine in order to replace a different vendor. i got some question that i would like to get an answer before we decide:
1. i have a copy of the virtual machines in my DR site that were created by the old replication software , can i use them to reduce the time of the initial replication ?
2 i currently have a vcenter on both sites , do i have to keep both of them or should i remove one and use one for both sites ? what is recommended ?
3. do i have some kind of high availability solution for the veeam management server ?
do i need to install one on the DR site ? i assume i need to , otherwise how would i perform a fail over in case my primary site is down.
how do i connect both servers?
4. can i control the NICs veeam uses for the replication somehow?

1. Yes, you can use replica mapping option in the job settings to do that.
2. Are these vCenter Server independent from each other or you're running the vCenter Server in a linked mode? Anyway, it is recommended to have a copy of your production infrastructure in the DR site. This would allow you to do a seamless failover. Running the secondary vCenter Server on the remote site is not a bad idea
3. In case of replication jobs, it is recommended to run the backup server on the DR site orchestrating all the jobs. Here is an existing topic for further reading > vCenter and Veeam replication to DR site
4. Yes, you can do that via this option > Specifying Preferred Networks for Data Transfer
