Undoing Failover

For more information on failover undo, see Failover Undo and Failover and Failback for Replication.

To undo failover:

  1. Open the Home view.
  2. In the inventory pane, navigate to the Replicas > Active node.
  3. In the working area, select the necessary replica and click Undo Failover on the ribbon. As an alternative, right-click one of the selected replicas and click Undo failover.
  4. In the displayed window, do the following:
  1. If you want to force failover undo, select the Force undo failover check box.

When you force failover undo, Veeam Backup & Replication attempts to perform the failover undo operation in a regular way. If the host on which the VM replica resides is unavailable, Veeam Backup & Replication changes the VM replica state to Ready in the configuration database and console. This helps avoid failure of the failover undo operation.

  1. Click Yes.
