Migrating Veeam Server to DR Site

Veeam Logoby Glewis » Mon Aug 17, 2015 9:28 am

Good Morning,

We recently had our yearly DR test where we disconnected the fibre for our DR site and booted up all our replicas to test. I wanted to test out the built in Veeam Failover Plan, but after noticing that the Veeam server was actually stored in the production environment, we had no way to connect so I had to manually boot up the VM's in vSphere.

I want to migrate Veeam over to our DR site and would like to know the best way to do this as using the Failover plan would be quite useful next time round.

Create a configuration backup, install additional backup server at DR site, and restore the configuration. Otherwise, if VB&R server is virtual, you can make it replicate itself, and, then, perform planned failover. Thanks.
