Replica seeding

Post by jim7jim » Jun 10, 2019 7:27 pm

I'm trying to follow these instructions (https://helpcenter.veeam.com/backup/vsp ... eding.html) but not sure I understand.

Can I just copy a .vbk file to the off-site repository to use as a replica seed? How do I incorporate the new vm into an existing replication job?

I assume once the new replica is up and synced, I can delete the .vbk seed file?

Hello,
seeding is available when you create / edit a new job, if when you tick the checkbox "Low connection bandwidth".

https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/backu ... l?ver=95u4

Yes, after the replica is synced, you can delete the .vbk seed file

Best regards,
Hannes

Edit: updated my previous post, as it was not correct.
