Migrating VMs

Post by tom.weiner » May 03, 2018 3:04 pm

I have an instance of B&R that is backing up VMs from two vCenter instances, vCenter A and vCenter B. We are going to be migrating all the VMs from vCenter A on to vCenter B using Veeam. What configuration changes do I need to make to the backup jobs so B&R can continue to use the same backup jobs but back up the VMs that have been migrated to vCenter B instead of continuing to back up VMs from vCenter A once the migration is complete? Thanks.

Hi Tom, you would need to re-add VMs into the job, pointing to the new vCenter. Please note, that upon being registered in the new vCenter, VMs will get new IDs causing Veeam B&R to perform full backup during the next run after re-adding them to the job.
