Best practice for restore and test

Is there a reference guide to testing our DR backups that are been sent to a different location.

Nimble device A <<<<over MPLS>>>>Nimble device B(DR side).

We have a vCenter on both sides, can we validate and test the backups?

Re: Best practice for restore and test

Hello,

You can do this very easily with scripting (powershell) or manually.

Process:

- Nimble: Clone the replicated snapshots

- Nimble: Apply ACL's to the cloned volumes

- VMware: Rescan HBA's

- VMware: Connect to targets

- VMware: power on VM's !! Make sure the network is isolated.

Test

- VMware: Detach storage

- Nimble: Delete clones

Veeam 9.5 will be leveraging a lot of this functionality.

Many thanks,

Chris
