I have just done a successful failover to a 3 day old replica restore point, after corruption of data on the server. Went without a hitch and I have now done a 'Failover Permanently', which has added the original server to the exclusion list on the replication job. I have some further questions (hopefully before our overnight backups trigger tonight!).
1. Do I have to add it to the exclusion list for my BACKUP job manually, or will Veeam have spotted that and remove it?
2. I should like to delete the original VM, rename the now current replica, and move it to the correct folder in VCentre. I presume this will then trigger a complete full backup, and also full replica, on the first overnight processes?
3. Is there any way of seeding these from the old replica/backups . . . (there might be two answers, one for my backups and one for replicas, as I realise the replica now really doesn't exist, so it will have to start again with a full?)
4. I presume I will then want to storage migrate the currect server off my backup datastore onto the production datastore.
Is there a 'best order' for performing these tasks, and have I forgotten anything?
