Veeam V7 replicate more then one VM at a time on the same job.

Hey Experts,
I got a simple question here i think that i just cant seem to find a quick answer to.
I have Veeam V7 running on VMware.  We are replicating to your DR location.   Is it possible to have a job replication 2 VMs at a time?  I know you can do separate jobs and all but within one job can it do more then 1 VM at a time?  If so how or where do you set that at?

The reason i am asking is every once and a while i will have a VM that takes a extremely long time to remove a snapshot so all the other VMs will just be sitting there waiting.  If it could be replicating two VMs at the same time at least things would still be making progress.

Thank you!

In a single Job with multuiple VMs , it will wait for the first VM to finish, before moving onto the second job.

If you create multiple jobs, for multiple VMs, that will occur in parallel.

So there is no way outside of creating multiple jobs to have multiple VMs processed in parallel?

Unless, Veeam have created a new option, to Concurrently Process VMs in a single JOB!

Hi tsukraw, thank you for considering Veeam! Engine of Veeam Backup & Replication v7 was significantly improved, so now you can process two or more VMs in one backup or replication job in parallel. To enable parallel processing, go to Options --> Advanced --> select Enable parallel VM and virtual disk processing.

I need to note that this is a global setting, meaning it will take effect for all backup & replication jobs.
