Veeam Replication Configuration

Hi all

Can anyone point me in the direction as how to correctly setup Veeam to replicate a virtual instance of Server 2012 to a backup/Failover machine

Scenario:
One (Host) Server 2012 instance running hyper V with one virtual instance of Server 2012 (Domain Controller)
One (Host) Server 2012, with no Hyper V and no Virtual instances, (Backup Server/Fail Over server)

What i want to know is how to correctly Replicate from Host/Domain Controller to Backup/Fail Over Server

I am using Veeam One

Do i Install Veeam One on the Domain Controller or on the Host server which is running Hyper V and replicate only the virtual instance?

I have no experince with Veeam so am looking for a beginners guide on setting it up

Any help appreciated

Thanks

First you use Veeam Backup and Replication, not Veeam One, Veeam One is the Management and Alerting Product.

Veeam One

Veeam Backup and Replication, this is what you want...

Built in Replication, included with Veeam Backup and Replication, replicates virtual machines from One Hyper-V Server to another Hyper-V Server.

So you will need Hyper-V at both sites.

What i want to know is how to correctly Replicate from Host/Domain Controller to Backup/Fail Over Server

You will need Hyper-V on both servers.

I am using Veeam One

Are you sure, because Veeam Backup and Replication does Backup, Restore and Replication.

Do i Install Veeam One on the Domain Controller or on the Host server which is running Hyper V and replicate only the virtual instance?

I would recommend you setup on a new server.

Hi Andrew

Thanks for the info, sorry for late reply, so all i need on the replication server is 2012 server with hyper V role installed and then configure Veeam on the "Live" server to replicate to the "Backup" Server

Thanks
