[I wasn't sure whether to post here on in the Endpoint forum as both are associated with my question but I thought I'd try here first.]
I am finalising our transition away from Backup Exec having moved our last few physical servers to Endpoint Backups to a physical Veeam repository server. This server is also our Backup Exec server & so has the tape library attached to it (as well as direct FC-attach to VMFS etc.)
This server also used to serve as a "dumping ground" file server which we're also transitioning away from but I now want to plan to complete the move away from BExec & so need a plan for backing up the system volume of this server to aid speedy recovery from a potential crash of this server.
I was hoping I might be able to install Endpoint on it, configured to back-up only the C: drive, but send it to the Veeam repository that happens to be itself. Is this feasible or will it leave me in a Matrix / Inception scenario?
If it can't work, what to folks around here use to back-up their physical repository server?
I know I could just do a backup to disk & then files to tape etc. but I *REALLY* want to be able to utilise the ability to (efficiently) copy the backups off-site.
