Hello Veeam Experts,
I am testing replication over WAN.
I have two sites. Site A (remote) has a Veeam Backup (Version = 8 Enterprise) and Site B (primary) has also a Veeam Backup Server (Version = 8 Enterprise).
On both sites, I have installed a separate Veeam Proxy (VMware Instance), as based on the documentation => http://helpcenter.veeam.com/backup/80/v ... ation.html
What is not clear to me, is the access to backup repository. I need the Veeam Backup Server (Site A remote) to perform local backups and restore, also having a management console, when connection to Site B primrary is lost - also to much data is backup - the "pure" Veeam Proxy is not working over WAN - we tested it already.
On site B (primary), I add the proxy of site A (remote).
Now the question: If I add the backup repository of site A (remote) to my backup server on site B (primary), isn't this going to case conflicts, when a backup/restore job is running and the replication job want to mount the backups for data seeding task?
Is it possible, the remote backup server (site A) can have the three roles (proxy and backup server and repository) at once or does the backup data on the local repository needs to be shared?
Or, does the local repository needs to be linked to the proxy (of Site A = remote) server? If yes, how is this done?
Our landscape is based on Windows 2008 64 bit (English) and all Veeam Server are having the same version setup => 8 + SP3
Thanks for your help getting a clear understanding of the proxy role and the role of the backup repository and its functions.
