we have this system in our environment:
- Server 1: VmServ (Productive)
- Server 2: BackupServ (Storing the Replicas)
Both Server have a internal Harddisk containing Veeam Backups.
It is running under Vmware Essentials without Vmotion. We have Veeam Enterprise Edition. The VMs are replicated once a day.
I have to shut down the Production Server for Maintenance, so I thought I could use Veeam Quick Migration for minimal disruption to our business.
I tried it with a Test VM, but then there was a problem:
The Name of my VM on VmServ is "TestVM", the name of the Replication "TestVM_replica". Migration creates a new VM ("TestVM") on the BackupServ and renames the original in "TestVM_migrated" (optionally deletes it).
If I do this for all my VMs, I have in short time the double number of VMs on BackupServ (all Replications and Migrations).
Is there a better way to do this?
Maybe starting the replicated VMs, synchronizing the latest Differences, shutdown the original VMs and later vice versa.
Or migrating it to "TestVM_replica"?
Thank you and regards,
