Restoring Veeam Agent Backup to Nutanix AHV VM
You can use the Veeam Backup & Replication console to restore a Veeam Agent computer as a Nutanix AHV VM in your virtualization environment. For restore to Nutanix AHV, you can use backups of Microsoft Windows and Linux computers 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 Nutanix AHV, you must install Nutanix AHV Plug-in on the Veeam Backup & Replication server. To learn more, see the Installation section in the Veeam Backup for Nutanix AHV User Guide.
[For Veeam Agent backups of Linux computers] If the disk you want to restore contains an LVM volume group, Veeam Agent will restore the original disk and the LVM volume group as 2 separate disks. Among other things, this leads to the increase of the required storage space. For example, you restore a machine with 2 disks, and a separate LVM volume group is configured on each of these disks. In this case, Veeam Agent will restore 4 disks. The restored disks will consume storage space equal to the size of 2 original disks and 2 LVM volume groups from these disks.
The procedure of restore to Nutanix AHV for a Veeam Agent computer practically does not differ from the same procedure for a VM. To learn more about restore to Nutanix AHV, see the Restoring VMs Using Veeam Backup & Replication Console section in the Veeam Backup for Nutanix AHV User Guide.
