Creating Recovery Token

If you want to recover volumes or an entire computer protected with Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows or Veeam Agent for Linux from a specific backup, you can use the Create recovery token operation.

NOTE

Starting from Veeam Backup & Replication version 12.1, you can generate recovery tokens for backups created by Veeam Agent for IBM AIX and Veeam Agent for Oracle Solaris.

You can generate the recovery token on the Veeam Backup & Replication side. Then, on the computer side, with this recovery token get access to the backup and recover data that are stored in the backup. To learn more, see one of the following sections depending on Veeam Agent you work with:
