May I ask to elaborate a little bit on what you’re trying to do, since it’s not that clear from the provided information? Thanks.

I'm sorry,

We provide VM replication via Veeam backup.
After replication VM program will create a second VM on ESX server with prefix "_replica"

We would like to Veeam's VM does not create.

Actually, the suffix is always added in order to prevent having VMs with the same name in the infrastructure. However, you can leave the corresponding field ("Replica name suffix") blank , thus, no additional suffix/prefix will be created.

Thanks.

Or, if you mean Veeam should create the replica on the target datastore BUT do not register it in the target ESXi (or cluster), I don't think is possible, even the replicated VMs are registered in the VMware infrastructure.

Actually you can skip this step (registration VM in the VI) by using vCenter Server granular permissions trick. Just do not specify "Virtual Machine - Inventory: Register" for the account used to connect to target vCenter Server and that's it.

[MERGED] Replication Job: let Replicas on the the Target

Veeam Logoby meddie » Thu Jul 09, 2015 1:20 pm

Hi,

i have a question because i didnt found some settings that could me help. I would like to let the Replicas on the target unregistered. So that them would be unvisible in the vCenter.
The reason is that a user has started a replica instead of the correct vm.

Can somebody helm me?
Thank you in advance

Yes, there will be a warning message saying that target replica cannot be registered in the VI.

Adrien, do you mean to prevent others from powering the replica VM on manually?
