Creating Custom Veeam Recovery Media with Command Line Interface

In this article

    To create custom Veeam Recovery Media with the command line interface, use the following command:

    veeamconfig patchiso --input <input_path> --output <output_path> --copy <additional_path>


    veeamconfig patchiso --efi --input <input_path> --output <output_path> --copy <additional_path>


    • <input_path> — path to the ISO file of the generic Veeam Recovery Media.
    • <output_path> — path to the resulting ISO file of the custom Veeam Recovery Media.
    • <additional_path> — path to a directory with additional drivers that you want to include in the Veeam Recovery Media.

    When you boot from the custom Veeam Recovery Media, the content of the directory specified with the <additional_path> parameter will be available in the root folder of the recovery environment.

    • --efioption that defines whether custom Veeam Recovery Media should be able to boot on EFI-based systems. Without this option, the custom Veeam Recovery Media will be able to boot on BIOS-based systems only.

    For example:

    $ veeamconfig patchiso --input /mnt/veeam/iso/veeam-recovery-amd64-5.0.0.iso --output /mnt/veeam/iso/veeam-recovery-media-srv01.iso --copy /tmp/template --efi
