Veeam failover plan using instant recovery form san snap shots the same way as for replicas. I would like to create groups of VMs mapped to a ESX server. Three groups three ESX servers.
1.Launch the New Failover Plan wizard
2.Specify a failover plan name and description
3.Select VMs – option to connect nic would be nice but not necessity.
4.Set time delay
5.start next failover group
With instant recovery from Veeam controlled san snapshots being, well instant, I no longer keep replicas. San snap shots take way less space and allow much better rto/rpo. I would like to have a preconfigured (VM to ESX host) mapping. This mapping will be tested for resource utilization by us. I would use mainly for DR, both real and testing.
