Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5
User Guide for Microsoft Hyper-V

Before You Begin

Before you restore a VM from, check the following prerequisites:

  • You can restore a VM from a backup that has at least one successfully created restore point.
  • When you restore a VM to its initial location and the original VM is still running, Veeam Backup & Replication will power off the original VM and delete it from the infrastructure.
  • On non-Microsoft Windows SMB3 storages, for example, Tintri, Veeam Backup & Replication may display the "Failed to disable integrity bit on disk N" warning during VM restore. You can ignore this warning for non-Microsoft Windows SMB3 storages.
  • The source host where the original VM was registered and target host on which the VM is restored must meet compatibility requirements below:
