Step 2. Select VMs

At the Virtual Machines step of the wizard, select one or more VMs for which you want to perform failover. You can perform failover for separate VMs and whole VM containers (Hyper-V hosts, clusters, SCVMM or volumes).

To select VMs and VM containers:

  1. Click Add VM.
  2. Select where to browse for VMs and VM containers:
  • From infrastructure — browse the virtual environment and select VMs or VM containers. If you choose a VM container, Veeam Backup & Replication will expand it to a plain VM list.

To quickly find VMs or VM containers, you can use the search field at the bottom of the Add Object window. Enter a VM or VM container name or a part of it in the search field and click Start search or press [Enter] on the keyboard.

  • From replicas — browse existing replication jobs and select all VMs or specific VMs from replication jobs.

To quickly find VMs, you can use the search field at the bottom of the Backup Browser window. Enter a VM name or a part of it in the search field and click Start search or press [Enter] on the keyboard.

You can also use the search field at the top of the wizard:

  1. Enter a VM name or a part of it in the search field. Veeam Backup & Replication will display possible matches.
  2. If the VM is not in the list, click the Show more link to browse existing VM replicas. Veeam Backup & Replication will open the Backup Browser window, and you can select the necessary VM replica there.

Make sure that VMs you select from the virtual environment have been successfully replicated at least once.

I want to report a typo

There is a misspelling right here:

 

I want to let the Veeam Documentation Team know about that.
