Step 6. Start Restore Process

In this article

    You can perform data restore in one of the following ways:

     

    Restoring Files from Backup

    To start the process of data restore from a backup file, use the following command:

    veeamconfig backup restore {--id <backup_id> | --path <vbm_path>} [--method <1|2|3>] [--ExcludeDirs <dir_list>]

    where:

    Alternatively, you can specify path to metadata file of the backup instead of ID by using the --path option.

    If you do not specify the restore method, Veeam Agent will use the default Use order algorithm for bare-metal recovery.

    For example:

    root@srv01:/# veeamconfig backup restore --id 12cfddd6-3bd1-44ae-baa1-653eb909e92e
    Restoring file-level backup.
    Backup: [12cfddd6-3bd1-44ae-baa1-653eb909e92e]
    File-level restore from backup has started.
    Session ID: [{cab490e6-3744-4a12-b8d6-deff4f1da640}].
    Logs stored in: [/var/log/veeam/Restore/Session_{cab490e6-3744-4a12-b8d6-deff4f1da640}].

     

    Restoring Files from Restore Point

    To start the restore process from a restore point, use the following command:

    veeamconfig point restore --id <point_id> [--method <1|2|3>] [--ExcludeDirs <dir_list>]

    where:

    If you do not specify the restore method, Veeam Agent will use the default Use order algorithm for bare-metal recovery.

    For example:

    root@srv01:/# veeamconfig point restore --id 6303185a-37fe-460a-8e6c-65746708fe77
    Restoring point.
    Restore point: 6303185a-37fe-460a-8e6c-65746708fe77

    File-level restore by point has been started.
    Session ID: [{697d9348-9001-4845-8764-3cc4fb3f296b}].
    Logs stored in: [/var/log/veeam/Restore/Session_{697d9348-9001-4845-8764-3cc4fb3f296b}].
