Best Practice for Y/E backup?

Post by mhutchison89 »

I'm looking to perform a one time backup of roughly 70 VM's for our business. We'll call it YE2014 for good measure, this is to meet an audit requirement. I would like to perform the backup to the same EMC Data Domain that my regular nightly backups are made to. What would be the best way of accomplishing this? I was looking at doing a backup copy job, but I don't see anyway to disable the "copy every" option. I just want this to be a one time archive backup.

Any advice is appreciated, enjoy your day :)

If you want to do a single backup of VMs to meet audit requirement, then I would recommend using VeeamZIP for that. Let me know if that helps!

It looks like that would work, but I'd like a way to be able to see the backup in the backup and replication menu so it's visible and the VM doesn't have to be manually retrieved if possible?

This is actually just a follow up on this, VeeamZIP it turns out works perfectly for what I'm needing it for. Thank you :)
