Third Offsite location for VM in Backup Copy job

Post by rdixon01 » Aug 13, 2018 7:01 pm

Does anyone know how a single VM in a backup copy job can be backed up to a third storage device?
I have a Backup job consisting of 14 VM's. This job backs up to on-prem HP 5500 StoreOnce. It's Backup Copy job copies directly to a HP 5500 SO at 2nd location.
I have a need to keep a monthly full backup of a single VM within this job offsite to a third location such as a another HP 5500 SO.
I know this is probably a stretch, but I thought I'd post the question.

Thanks

- Create new backup copy jo
- Select required VM from infrastructure
- Specify the backup repository holding the primary backup copy restore points as the source

More information regarding backup copy from backup copy can be found here.

Thanks

[MERGED] VBR backup-copy-copy

Post by mrholm » Aug 17, 2018 9:07 am

Hi
We have 5 central Veeam VBR servers around the world and remote offices (>50). The remote offices have local proxies on site and backups is done locally.
To secure data we do a backup copy from remote offices to central sites and store them on HPE StoreOnce Catalyst and this copies are retained for DR purpose and for long-term storage.

Now a question have come up how to secure the data stored in the central repositories and one thing we discussed is to invest in extra StoreOnce units and have a third copy done. The challange as we see it is that we want the central Veeam VBR servers to be the Proxy/Gateway for the third copy and not use the remote proxies.
The plan is as follows:
For easy understanding I use on VBR server (central-vbr1), one remote Proxy (remote-prox1) and on existing central repository for Catalyst store (central-catalyst1)

1. set up new StoreOnce Catalyst store (in new StoreOnce) with central-vbr1 as Gateway
2. create a new backup copy job that as source only looks in the central repository central-catalyst1 and objects is the backup job that is used for backups in remote office
3. point the new bakcup copy job to the new Catalyst store with central-vbr1 as Gateway and mount server

Will this cretae a new bakcup copy chain in the new StoreOnce based on copied data stored in the existing central repository?

Is there any other way to fix this?
