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 (hosts, clusters, folders, resource pools, VirtualApps, datastores or tags).

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.
  • From replicas — browse existing replicas and select VMs or VM containers under replication jobs.

To quickly find the necessary VMs within existing replicas, you can use the search field at the top of the window.


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