Manual Recovery Verification
Beside automatic recovery verification, you can perform manual verification of machine backups. Manual verification can be performed with all editions of Veeam Backup & Replication.
To perform a machine boot test, perform Instant Recovery for the verified machine. Power on the machine but do not connect the machine to the production network to avoid conflicts with the original machine.
To perform an application test:
- Create an isolated network.
- Perform Instant Recovery to restore the verified machine. At the Network step of the wizard, select to connect the machine to the created isolated network.
The same procedure must be performed for all machines that run applications on which the verified machine is dependent such as domain controller and DNS. All machines must be connected to the same isolated network and started in the correct order: for example, DNS > domain controller > verified machine.
