We have a single Windows domain running on VMware (6.5 update 1), that is geographically spread out, 1 central site running most of the domain's servers and remote sites with their own Domain Controllers etc (in case the network connection is lost). Each site has a 2 server cluster.
There is a single installation of vCenter at the central site, with Veeam 9.5 update 2 installed on stand-alone servers at each site backing up through the one instance of vCenter to that server's local storage.
All is working really well, and we're really pleased with Veeam.
We were just wondering if it would be better to back up using through the hosts rather than using vCenter, so that if the network connections are lost backup and restoration jobs can still be carried out at remote sites. However, what would happen if the VM moved from one host to another in the cluster? Are there any better ways to set this up?
Thanks for any help or advice,
