    vSphere Replication Seeding

    piedthepiper Novice

      Hi Guys,

       

      Basically the standard way to do a seed is to power down the VM at the source site making a copy of it and then taking it over to the DR site putting it on a datastore and point the source site VM replication instance to the seed.

       

      My question is instead of this cant you just use a VDP/Veeam backup restore it at the target site, itll be a bit out of date and point vSphere replication to that?

       

      I am taking its probably not possible, as I am sure it would have been on the internet somewhere, if not I am curious as to why not?

       

      Cheers,
