Restoring Veeam Agent Backup to 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 backups of Microsoft Windows and Linux machines created on the Veeam backup repository. You cannot use backups created on the Veeam Cloud Connect repository for this operation.

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

    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 Instant VM Recovery section in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.
