Veeam Replication – VM Failover

Part 1 here: Veeam Replication – Installation Part 2 here: Veeam Replication – Configuration Part 3 here: Veeam Replication – VM Replication The last part of the Veeam portion of the Replication Roundup, is VM Failover.  While Veeam has failover plans, and has some powerful advanced settings, for the series, replication and failover will be done using the minimum amount of work. To get started, select Replicas from the tree on the left, and right click on the VM.  Choose “Failover Now” to initiate the failover process. Select the restore point.[…]

Veeam Replication – VM Replication

Part 1 here: Veeam Replication – Installation Part 2 here: Veeam Replication – Configuration Now that we have Veeam installed, and configured with both site’s vCenter servers, lets get the replication job created.  In the navigation tree on the left, select Backup and Replication, and choose to create a new replication job. Give the backup job a name, and a description.  To keep the lab simple, we will assume the virtual networks are the same name, and that the VM will not need to be given a new IP address[…]

Veeam Replication – Configuration

Part 1 here: Veeam Replication – Installation  Now that we have Veeam installed in a virtual machine, it’s time to configure it to talk to our vSphere environment to enable replication.  To do this, we will be adding both our primary site, and secondary site’s vCenter appliances into the console. First, lets navigate to the Backup Infrastructure tab, and select Managed Servers.  Here, choose VMware vSphere. Now, we can enter the details for our primary site’s vCenter server. Name or IP is acceptable. A short description is always nice for[…]

Veeam Replication – Installation

To continue on the Replication Roundup series, and not too far behind the Veeam ON conference, it only make sense to highlight Veeam Availability Suite’s replication.  As a reminder, This series is not to compare / contrast features of each, but to simply highlight the process from start to finish to get a VM replicated. Veeam version 9 was just released, and thus – we are using version 9 for the series. Let’s get started with the installation of Veeam Backup and Recovery. The Lab Setup: For our lab, we[…]

vSphere 6.0 Replication – Failover

Be sure to visit parts 1, 2, and 3: vSphere 6.0 Replication – Installation vSphere 6.0 Replication – Configuration vSphere 6.0 Replication – VM Replication Now that everything has been up and replicating for a while, it’s time to do a failover.  As you can see, we even have our multiple points in time. Failing over a virtual machine with vSphere Replication is quite easy.  At the DR site, under vSphere Replication, simply right click on the VM, and choose Recovery. Here, we have 2 options: Synchronize recent changes – this[…]

vSphere 6.0 Replication – VM Replication

Be sure to visit parts 1 and 2: vSphere 6.0 Replication – Installation vSphere 6.0 Replication – Configuration Now that we have vSphere Replication installed, and our primary and DR site’s connected, it’s time to get a VM replicating.  In my nested lab, I have a VM running Tiny Linux that we will replicate. First step, is the right click on the VM, and choose “All vSphere Replication Actions”, and then “Configure Replication.”  vSphere replication has the ability to replicate to a cloud provider, but in our case, we will[…]

vSphere 6.0 Replication – Configuration

  In Part 1, vSphere 6.0 Replication – Installation, we successfully deployed the vSphere Replication OVA to both the main and DR sites.  In part 2, we will configure the sites, and replicate a VM. First, log out and back into the vSphere web client, to ensure the vSphere Replication plugin is working properly.  The Replication link should be listed in the navigator bar on the left.  We will navigate there, and select our vCenter server and click manage. Next, click the button to connect to a target site, and enter[…]
