I'm testing the Veeam Backup & Replication software free Edition and i want to use it
to backup a Virtual machine from an ESXI server on a network (network1), and restore then the VM
machine on a second network (network2).
The two networks have no physical connection and are totaly differen (apart for the same ip class
The two veeam backup & replication installations are completely indipendent.
The reason for this need is very simple: in case of a very severe physical disaster during which i lost
ALL my network1 components (including the veeam backup and replication server), i want to
be sure that all i have to do to get the machines back is to restore the vbk from my removable storage
using a completely new and fresh installation of Veeam Backup & Replication software.
Is it possible to accomplish this task in a simple way with Veeam B&R free?
I tried the following but i failed.
This is my scenario:
#1 physical vsphere essential 6.0 server (named server_exs1) (to admin it i have the account:
#1 VM on the server_esx1 (named vm1) (the admin user for vm1 is:user_vm1/pass_vm1)
#1 veeam backup & replication free server server_veeam1 (to admin it i have the local account:
user_veeam1/pass_veeam1) to which i added the server_esxi1
#1 physical vsphere essential 6.0 server (named server_exs2) (to admin it i have the account:
#1 veeam backup & replication free server server_veeam2 (to admin it i have the local account:
user_veeam2/pass_veeam2) to which i added the server_esxi2
I perform a backup of vm1 using server_veeam1 and save the .vbk fine on a removable storage
Then i proceed to restore the vm1 on the other network.
In order to do this on the HOME tab i click RESTORE on the toolbar.
As i click on the BROWSE and select my .vbk file, the veeam software ask me for credentials.
I have tried any credential
but i always get
"incorrect username and password" error.
Thanks in advance.
