We're planning on using Veeam to permanently migrate our VMs to a new datacenter. When we do the cutover, we'll shut down the VMs and do a final replication before Failover. Since every VM that is being migrated will be shut down first before the very last sync, is there still a need to use Application-aware processing? We don't plan on doing any DR type failovers with it in this scenario.
Another possibly related question is we've got some servers that reside in our DMZ. These servers either have different credentials or no firewall access to talk to any of the Veeam servers currently. For example, one of these machines gives the error
"4/29/2016 3:52:31 AM :: Error: Failed to connect to guest agent. Errors:
'Cannot connect to the host's administrative share. Host: [DMZ IP]. Account: [accountname].
Win32 error:The network path was not found.
Considering the previous scenario of VMs being shut down before final replication, Is there a way to make it so that it doesn't need to talk to the administrative share? Can it just do all of its operations via vCenter/vSphere?
