VDR Backup same server using 2 different VDR Servers

Is it possible to have 2 VDR Applicances to backup the same server.

eg.

1.On site VDR  server 1 backup of Server 1

2.Offsite  VDR  server  2 backup of Server 1

with CBT will each server know what changes occured since the last backup, or does the first backup clear CBT so when the second backup runs it will mess up the CBT for the second server ?

Yes it's possible, but you must ensure that jobs backups don't run concurrently. If not jobs backup will fail

Each VDR backup job will have it's own CBT files. It does affect performance since each CBT file incurs an additional disk write. Do make sure the backup job windows do no overlap.

Ok if I look at the datastore for the VM I only see 1 cbt file. I have run backups using both VDR Servers. Am I missing something
