Hi Experts,

  Hope you can help me out here. Im running ESXi 4.1 Enterprise. I have around 40 -50vms. I backup these VMs with vDR. Since I dont want to keep the local vDR backups on site I want it to be uploaded to the cloud backup.

Since my vDR VM is running during the night (out of business hours) and the Integrity Check/ Reclaiming  is done during the day im not able to shutdown the VM.

Question: Is there a way for me to copy the vDR VMDK (which holds the backup data) to an another location. from the other location I will setup my cloud backup as a source.

Many Thanks
