Veeam Backup Free Edition lets you restore a VM from VeeamZIP files back to the vCloud Director hierarchy.
The VM can be restored to its initial location or to any other location of your choice. You can restore a VM that already exists — for example, in case the initial VM is corrupted or you want to revert to an earlier state of the VM, or a VM that no longer exists — for example, if it was deleted by mistake. If you restore a VM that already exists, the initial VM is overwritten with that from the VeeamZIP file.
To restore a VM to vCloud Director, follow the next steps:
- Choose a VeeamZIP file
- Select a restore mode
- Select the VM location
- Select a destination network
- Select a template to link
- Select a storage profile and datastores
- Verify recovery settings
