Replication of Encrypted VMs

Veeam Backup & Replication supports encrypted VMs. To let Veeam Backup & Replication successfully replicate encrypted VMs, the backup infrastructure must meet the following requirements:

  • VM encryption instances must be pre-configured in the virtual infrastructure: you must set up the key management server, create the VM encryption policy and assign it to VMs in advance.
  • The backup proxy used for backup must be working in the Virtual appliance transport mode or Network transport mode with SSL encryption enabled.
  • The backup proxy working in the Virtual appliance transport mode must be deployed on an encrypted VM.
  • You must place disks and the configuration file of the VM replica on datastores to which the VM Encryption policy is assigned. To do this, at the Destination step of the wizard, click Datastore and select a datastore under the VM Encryption Policy.

Limitations for Replication of Encrypted VMs

Multi-OS file-level restore for encrypted VM replicas is not supported.
