Before you perform Instant VM Recovery, consider the following:
- You can restore a machine from a backup that has at least one successfully created restore point.
- If you restore a machine to the production network, make sure that the original machine is powered off to avoid conflicts.
- If you want to scan machine data for viruses, check the secure restore requirements and limitations.
- On non-Microsoft Windows SMB3 storage, for example, Tintri, Veeam Backup & Replication may display the "Failed to disable integrity bit on disk N" warning during restore. You can ignore this warning for non-Microsoft Windows SMB3 storage.
- The restored VM will have the same MAC address as the original VM. Therefore, if you restore the VM to the same Hyper-V host where the original VM is running, a MAC address conflict may occur. To overcome this situation, power off the original VM before you start the restore process.
