Veeam offsite backup - first backup

Hello ,
on Veeam 7,
i want to setup a remote location over WAN.
i have a remote server ( proxy )  + site to site all set.

whats is the best practice to do the first full backup onsite and then import this " full backup " into the remote location.

You also need to think about how you are going to do the restore, not just the initial backup

Gerald ConnollyCommented:
Sorry, that doesn't make sense, if you are worried about how long it's going to take to create the initial backup off-site, then it folllows, that a restore from off-site is also problematic, now if you are saying well we have a local backup to do the restore from, then you need to think about the scenario when that local backup might not be available.

I don't have any Veeam expertise so can't help you on details only process.

When your full backup will be on a remote site, you can use backup mapping (Backup copy job) - http://helpcenter.veeam.com/backup/70/vsphere/backup_copy_mapping_file.html
