As a happy Veeam B&R Std 9.5 owner, I have 1 year of paid support from Veeam.
So well...how to say it... I generally always get more helpful information here in the forum ^!^
So let's dive into My verrrrrry difficult question (ironic) :
When I have backed up my Production Server
, and it goes totally down:
- Q#1 : Can I restore a full backup to my Disaster Recovery
site ? (I assume that the answer is "Yes", but with Veeam B&R, that's always better to ask!)
- Q#2 : Can I run an "Instant Recovery" on my Disaster Recovery
For this second question, it seems that my 1-CPU license does not allow me to run "Instant Recovery" on my Disaster Recovery
site, but only on my Production Site
. So as my Production server will be down, I am thinking to revoke the license of the Production Site, and add the Recovery site in the license. Then, after disaster is finished, do the opposite. So if we revoke the production site, and add the license for the Disaster recovery site, will our backup originally taken from the Production site run on the Disaster site in "Instant Recovery" mode ?
- Q#3 : Bonus question : How many times can I do that ? (switch and revoke license)
Thank you for your lights
