You can just move the whole backup chain to Backup2, import it on your Backup2 repo and map your Site1_Job to that backup.Got VEEAM running on two servers at two sites - connected with high speed (1Gb) link.
Site 2 VEEAM has 3x local drives attached to it - Backup1, Backup2, Backup3. Site 1 VEEAM has all three set up as backup repository.
Currently have ~8TB from one backup job at site 1 pointing to Backup3 at site 2. I'd like to move the files from Backup3 to Backup2, and somehow point the job (that's running on VEEAM at Site 1) to the new Backup2 location, rather than having to recreate the job and do the initial 8TB seed all over again. is that possible?
That's 100% normal since both of your Veeam servers have separate databases, thus "site1 Veeam knows Backup1_repo" does not imply "site2 Veeam knows Backup1_repo".Also - just another off-topic question. When I add a backup repository on site1 VEEAM, I would have thought it would show up on site 2 veeam. For instance - I go create it at site 2, call it 'backup 4', and point it to the H:/ drive. It shows up on site 2, but then I have to go to site 1 and create the same thing - go through the same steps except pick the repository server at site 2. is that normal?

2)In your OS manually copy/paste previous backups from former repository to the new one.
3)In Veeam B&R User-interface right-click on the new repository and choose “Rescan” option.
4)After having done that, go to the properties of the job you want to move, particularly to the “Storage” settings.
5)Change Backup repository to the new one.
6)Click “Map backup” option, open your new repository by clicking “+”, and choose job you’ve already moved (Note, please, that the name of the job, files of which you’re trying to move to a new location, should be revealed. Otherwise, try to rescan new repository again or redo previous actions).
