    Hi,

    Looking to implement a solution where by our working host replicates to a secondary host using Veaam incremental backups. If host 1 fails then the solution would be to spin up Veeam VM instant recovery and run the necessary VM’s – great.

    My thoughts go to issues with authentication on getting the vm’s up given the fact that potentially everything could be down – DC,DNS – the lot. Am I over thinking this and will cached credentials allow me to log in and start the servers up or is there a belt an braces solution I could implement to cover me on this scenario?

    Thanks

    What OS are the hosts running?
    If HyperV, a domain member HyperV host can (IIRC since Server 2012) boot without a DC/DNS available. Not sure about ESX

    They will be running 2012 so that puts my mind at rest :) thanks
