Before You Begin

Before you begin restore to Microsoft Azure, check the following prerequisites:

  • Check limitations listed in Limitations for Restore to Microsoft Azure.
  • You must create a backup of the workload that you want to restore in Microsoft Azure. For the list of supported backups, see Restore to Microsoft Azure.
  • A backup chain from which you plan to restore a workload must reside in a backup repository added to the backup infrastructure. You can also import a backup to the Veeam Backup & Replication console. For more information, see Importing Backups.
  • You must configure the following objects in Microsoft Azure beforehand:
    • Storage account whose resources you plan to use to store disks of the restored workload.
    • Networks to which you plan to connect the restored workload.

For storage accounts and network configuration, you must use the same deployment model that you plan to use for workload restore.

  • [For speeding up restore from Capacity Tier] It is strongly recommended to use Azure proxy when you restore from backups residing on a Capacity Tier. For more information on Azure proxies, see Managing Microsoft Azure Proxies.
  • You must set up correct time on the backup server. Otherwise you may not be able to add a Microsoft Azure compute account or Microsoft Azure Stack Hub compute account to Veeam Backup & Replication, or the restore process may fail.
