I am aware of VCHA for VCSA however in this instance we are looking to utilize Veeam Replication for protection of VMs to a 2nd Site and want to know if VMware support this?
So could the VCSA 7.x with embedded PSC be replicated to a 2nd site with Veeam Replication and is that supported?
The searches i have seen show the below where @depping covered this years ago allude to this NOT being supported however now we have the VCSA maybe this is supported?
Doesn't veeam use vcenter in the replication process, you can't really restore a vm when that vm is required for the restore process to work. The vsphere replication on "works" but isn't really a process you would want to go with, your better off restoring a backup and then trying a command-line heavy restore process.
I don't know whether it is supported by Veeam or vSphere Replication. But I don't see any harm with that as it should just consider VC as a VM.
Problem would be how to recover it ; if VC is actually down. May be this can work if I have 2 VC's and 2 vSphere Replication(VR) and the VC and VR VM is under the other VC inventory . Just a thought . 💭
NOTE: vCenter HA(vCHA) protects the vCSA against host and hardware failures and is not a disaster recovery product such as Site Recovery Manager and VMware vSphere Replication.
