Step 3. Start Restore Process

In this article

    To start the process of volume-level restore from the specific restore point, use the following command:

    veeamconfig point restore --id <point_id> --targetdev <target_volume> --backupdev <volume_in_backup>


    • <point_id> — ID of the restore point.
    • <target_volume> — path to a block device that represents a volume on your computer that you want to recover.
    • <volume_in_backup> — path to a block device that represents a volume in the backup.

    This parameter is optional. If you do not specify this parameter, Veeam Agent will restore from the backup a volume that has the same name as a <target_volume>.

    For example:

    user@srv01:~$ veeamconfig point restore --id 9375140d-720a-4d3e-a69b-ab9cf60d53fa --backupdev /dev/sda6 --targetdev /dev/sdb
    Restoring point.
    Restore point: 9375140d-720a-4d3e-a69b-ab9cf60d53fa
       Device in current system: [/dev/sdb]  In backup: [/dev/sda6];
    You are sure? (y/n)
    Volume 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}].


    Step 3. Start Restore Process IMPORTANT

    You can restore a backed-up volume only to a target volume that is not used by your Linux OS (that does not have file system mount points). For example, you can add a new disk to your computer and restore a volume in the backup to this disk. To restore a volume to its original location or to another volume used by Linux OS, you should boot from the Veeam Recovery Media and perform volume-level restore with the Volume Restore wizard.
