Restoring to Nutanix AHV
Veeam Backup & Replication allows you to restore Azure VMs from image-level backups created with Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure to Nutanix AHV clusters. You can restore VMs to the most recent restore point or to any available restore point.
To perform restore to Nutanix AHV clusters, do the following:
- Check that you have configured the backup infrastructure required for Veeam Backup for Nutanix AHV as described in the Deployment section in the Veeam Backup for Nutanix AHV User Guide.
- Make sure that backups of the necessary Azure VMs are in an on-premises repository. If you have not copied the backup beforehand, follow the instructions from the Creating Backup Copy Jobs for VMs and Physical Machines section in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.
To restore Azure VMs from backups stored in the archive tier of a scale-out backup repository, you do not need to copy backups to on-premises repositories. However, you must retrieve data as described in the Retrieving Backup Files section in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.
- Launch and complete the Restore to Nutanix AHV wizard.
To do that, open the Home view after Veeam Backup & Replication finishes copying backups. In the inventory pane, navigate to the Backups > Disk (Copy) node. In the working area, expand the necessary job, and select backups of VMs that you want to recover. On the ribbon, in the Restore to AHV section, click Entire VM. Then follow the instructions provided in the Restoring VMs Using Veeam Backup & Replication Console section in the Veeam Backup for Nutanix AHV User Guide.
