"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Have you already setup 2nd hyperV host or cluster ?

Yes, with replication and replica broker.

A known good backup.

Hyper-V Replica does _not_ replace a known good backup setup.

That being said Host 1 --> Host 2 --> Host 3 in a Data Centre.

Back up Host 1, test that backup by fully restoring the entire set to another server, then you're good to go.
