We are currently running several SureBackup jobs to validate different areas of our backups. One of the issues I have hit on several occasions is Veeam only allows 1x SureBackup to be running at a time.
I have 2x requests here:
1. I want to be able to use SureBackup to bring up some core infrastructure, such as a D, DHCP Server, File Server (File share witness for Exchange for example) and have this stay up for a period so that this can be used by dependant children SureBackup jobs.
2. I then want to be able to run secondary sure-backup jobs within the same Virtual Lab (one at a time due to resource limitations), which depends on the above DC etc, which I can use to validate Exchange, file servers, DB servers etc, without having to include the DC in each backup job. Having the DC etc in each SureBackup needlessly extends the time to complete these tests.
I know I can create multiple labs, however these are isolated from each other, and are additional overheads which should not be necessary, as well as creating the need to have multiple SureBackup DCs in each lab, which is what Im trying to avoid.
