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.

i dont want to run the first full backup over the WAN also.

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

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.

You can:

1.

Create a full backup using VeeamZIP functionality

2.

Store it to an external USB

3.

Send this USB with Fedex or any other shipment company to a remote site

4.

Import full backup on a remote site

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
