Restoring Veeam Agent Backup to Microsoft Hyper-V VM

In this article

    You can use the Veeam Backup & Replication console to restore a Veeam Agent computer as a Hyper-V VM in your virtualization environment. For instant recovery to a Hyper-V VM, you can use Veeam Agent backups created on the Veeam backup repository. You cannot perform this operation with Veeam Agent backups created on the Veeam Cloud Connect repository.

    Mind that to restore to a Hyper-V VM, you must consider the Hyper-V limitations. To learn more, see this Microsoft article.

    A restored Hyper-V VM has the same settings as a backed-up Veeam Agent computer. During the restore process, Veeam Backup & Replication retrieves settings of the Veeam Agent computer from the backup and applies them to the target VM.

    The procedure of instant recovery for a Veeam Agent computer practically does not differ from the same procedure for a VM. The main difference from instant VM recovery is that you do not need to select the recovery mode, because Veeam Agent computers are always restored to a new location. To learn more about instant VM recovery, see the Performing Instant Recovery of Workloads to Hyper-V VMs section in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.
