Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 4
User Guide for Microsoft Hyper-V

Performing Failover

If a VM becomes unavailable or fails in case of a disaster, you can fail over to a VM replica and quickly restore services in the production environment. When you perform failover, the VM replica takes over the role of the original VM. As a result, you have your VM up and running within a couple of minutes, and your users can access services and applications they need with minimal disruption.

Before performing failover, check prerequisites. Then use the Hyper-V Failover wizard to fail over the VM replica.

  1. Launch the Failover wizard
  2. Select VMs and restore points
  3. Specify a failover reason
  4. Review summary and finish working with the wizard
