Chaining like that is not supported. HYCU can do remote site backup which may help you out.
OK. Thank's for the answer.
Too bad that it does not work with on-board resources.

You can define multiple remote site targets, though in your situation you're probably concerned about bandwidth or geographical separation issues. Unfortunately you cannot chain backup replications. If you wanted to migrate a VM though, here is my suggestion. Activate the PD on the first destination and then create a new PD to perform an Async replication to the final target. That replication will be a full of course, but that is one way that you can migrate systems between clusters.

Hope that helps.
