Entire VM Restore

With Veeam Backup & Replication, you can restore an entire VM from a backup file to the latest state or to any good-to-know point in time if the primary VM fails.

Entire VM restore requires you to fully extract the VM image to the production storage. Veeam Backup & Replication copies the VM data from the backup repository to the selected storage, registers the VM on the chosen Hyper-V host and, if necessary, powers it on.

A VM can be restored to its original location or to a new location. When you restore a VM to its original location, the primary VM is automatically turned off and deleted before the restore. This type of restore ensures the quickest recovery and minimizes the number of mistakes which can be potentially caused by changes in VM settings.

When you restore a VM to a new location, you need to specify new VM settings such as the new VM name, the host and volume where the VM will reside and network properties. Veeam Backup & Replication will change the VM configuration file and store the VM data to the location of your choice.

Entire VM Restore Note:

If a VM has several VM disks, Veeam Backup & Replication restores VM disks in parallel.
