Backup of a VM using Veenam and vSphere replication simultan

Veeam Logoby Karthikdhanusu » Fri Oct 07, 2016 9:21 pm

Hello All,

I have scenario wherein a SQL server is replicating to vCloud Air through vSphere replication at the same time Veenam backup is configured to take backups frequently. The problem is if the replication is in progress it won't allow Veenam to take snapshot which is part of the backup process and eventually the backup task fails to overcome this situation I need to pause the replication, initiate a backup task manually, Once the task is complete I need to kick start the replication manually.

I want to know if there is way to run these 2 jobs simultaneously, I know we can automated tasks to pause the replication initiate a backup and kick start the replication but I want the other way.

I think the only option you have in this case is to write simple pre-job PowerShell script making use of PowerCLI and make a backup job pause its activity until replication to vCloud Air finishes. Thanks.
