Sharing proxies/repository between different servers

Veeam Logoby mconte » Mon Nov 11, 2013 4:48 pm

I would like to know if I can share a Veeam proxy (and/or a repository) between different veeam backup servers.
I read in another message that it was not possible with Veeam 6.x. Is it possible now in Veeam 7.0 ?

Michele, I believe it's the same as previously: the number of concurrent tasks per proxy and repository is counted within each backup server independently. So you should keep this in mind when considering your backup load, especially with parallel processing enabled.

It was possible with 6.5 at least and still is in 7.x but as Alexander says, keep in mind how many task you permit from each server.

It's perfect, since I only need a "twin" backup server for training/test purposes only, without any activity in the production backup window.

[MERGED] Multiple Backup Server, One Repository Server

Veeam Logoby haennerson » Sat Mar 28, 2015 2:50 pm

Hi Community

My question is if it is possible to have two Backup Server and only one Repository Server.
I will not use the same path, only the same server.

Regards, Simon

Hi Simon,

Sharing repositories is not possible, however you can create multiple repositories on the same server. Can you please let me know what you're trying to achieve?

Thanks!

Hi Vitaliy

Thx for your answer. Yes I will do on the same server one Reposiotory for each Backup Server.
Our Backup Server is directly attached to a Storage (SAS) and to a tape library.
And I would like to use two different backup server (internaly infrastructure and one for customer).

Do you undestand this?

Yes, please review the configuration limitations in the post above that you should keep in mind. Do you provide backup a service to your customer?

Have you considered using Veeam Cloud Connect infrastructure for this scenario?

Since you're leveraging Cloud Connect, you must be a in our VCP program and, thus, should have access to Cloud Connect SP private forum.

If need be, you can post there CC specific questions and get feedback from other providers using Cloud Connect. Just open the user management page of these forums and apply to that said forum.

Thanks.
