Step 8. Finish Working with Veeam Recovery Media

When the restore operation completes, finish working with Veeam Recovery Media and start your operating system.


Step 8. Finish Working with Veeam Recovery Media Note

Before you reboot the recovered system, consider the following:

  • Before you reboot the machine upon successful bare metal recovery, you may need to restore additional data from another backup. In this case, follow the standard procedure of file-level restore as described in Restoring Files and Directories.
  • Veeam recovery environment starts in the machine RAM. Bare metal recovery (BMR) logs are saved to the /var/log/veeam directory of the recovery system OS file system and to the repository that contains the backup file you used for data restore. If the repository does not support log export, you risk losing all BMR logs because local logs are lost on system reboot. We recommend saving them to a remote location or to the recovered file system for further reference.
  • If the system recovers successfully, at the next launch the machine will automatically boot from the hard drive.



  1. Reboot the machine.
  2. Wait for the IBM AIX operating system to start.
  3. Verify network settings. If necessary, reconfigure the network interface.
  4. [Optional] If Veeam Agent on the original machine had integration with Veeam backup server, verify connection to the server by running the following command:

veeamconfig vbrserver resync

If the machine obtained a different ID after recovery, Veeam Agent may have a problem connecting to Veeam backup server. To fix the issue, use the following command:

veeamconfig vbrserver edit --password

Veeam Agent prompts you to re-enter the password for the backup server account. After Veeam backup server confirms the password, the integration gets restored.
