Hi,

is it possible to assign the one cloud repository to multiple Veeam Backup servers ?

Are you referring to the Cloud Connect repository? Could you please elaborate on the entire scenario?

Sure,

we have multiple Veeam Backup & Replication servers, belonging to one customer. On the first VBR we connect to a cloud connect repository using the given credentials of the SP. On the second VBR we want to use the same credentials in order to use the same Cloud repository.

Just keep the load aspect in mind.

Thanks for the update,

How about the content ? We tested this configuration on two VBR servers. The content of the repository is not identical on both VBR servers, however it is possible to rescan the repository. Is this expected behaviour ?

Does the content become the same after rescan procedure?

I think I made a classic mistake....

You can do a rescan on the service provider part, but to refresh the cloud repository you have to rescan the cloud repository in the infrastructure part :)

Yes, in order to populate the content of a given cloud repository a customer, not a service provider, has to rescan it. Thanks.
