Performing Restore of vCloud Director VMs

The vCD restore is practically the same as a regular VM restore. You can restore separate VMs to vApps, as well as VM data.

For restore, Veeam Backup & Replication uses VM metadata saved to a backup file and restores specific VM attributes. As a result, you get a fully-functioning VM in vCloud Director, do not need to import the restored VM to vCloud Director and adjust the settings manually.

Backed up objects can be restored to the same vCloud Director hierarchy or to a different vCloud Director environment. For restore or vCloud Director objects from the cloud repository, the following options are supported:

  • Full restore for vApps and VMs
  • Restore of VM disks
  • Restore of VM files
  • Guest OS file-level restore for VMs (Microsoft Windows FS only. Multi-OS restore is not supported.)
