backup virtual machine with two backup software
Posted on 2013-05-13
We are using two backup software - Veeam, and IBM TSM for VE. Most of the machines are backed up by TSM and another small part of them are backed up by Veeam( we need it due to instant recovery that is possible).
We have a requirements to have backups for a whole VM also on tapes , so it's necessary to make a backup of VM with TSM( at least one full VM backup).
Do you think there will be any problem when I backup a virtual machine regularry with Veeam and I create a one full backup with TSM ( jsut to clarify that backups will not be performed at the same time).
Also I want to move some VM to be backed up with TSM and another with Veeam, instead of TSM. Do I have to perform something special?
VMware servers are version 4.1U1, Veeam and TSM use storage API.
