So my client has VCenter v5.0 and has 2 hosts running on this VCenter. There is 1 VDR backup appliance running on 1 of the hosts and doing around 20 backups nightly combined for both hosts. It appears there are some network dropouts from time to time from some of the vm's around the same time the backups are running.
To lessen the load on the 1 VDR, I want to know if it's recommended or possible to have multiple VDRs on 1 VCenter e.g. 1 VDR appliance per host? If yes, is there a recommended procedure for cloning the current VDR and then reconfiguring it for the second host?
