Hi Guys,

I currently have 1 VM that i use Windows Server Backup to back up my data to a networked Netgear ReadyNAS Pro 2.

I want to use WSB on another VM and possibly back that VM up to the same NAS. Is that possible?

Yes you can and if you want something different than WSB then try Veeam.

Yes, it is possible. I would create separate share for this machine. So that you can differentiate between the two backup storages.

Thanks Guys.

If the NAS is added as a Datastore to one vm, could this still work?

As long as the share on this Datastore is accessible for read/write - it must work.
