Veeam "processing configuration error: the servername already exists"
Posted on 2013-11-12
I created a replication job in Veeam that includes two SQL servers. Now I want to separate the job into two different replication jobs because of differing requirements for the number of restore points. I removed the second server from the replication job and created a separate job for that server. However, replication fails with an error that says " Processing configuration Error: The name 'servername' already exists."
In the past when I encountered this error I deleted the existing replica and then created a new one. But in this case I need to retain the replica. I would appreciate any assistance someone could offer on how to create a new replication job that works with the existing replica.
