Before you restore a VM from, check the following prerequisites:
- You can restore a VM from a backup that has at least one successfully created restore point.
- When you restore a VM to its initial location and the original VM is still running, Veeam Backup & Replication will power off the original VM and delete it from the infrastructure.
- On non-Microsoft Windows SMB3 storages, for example, Tintri, Veeam Backup & Replication may display the "Failed to disable integrity bit on disk N" warning during VM restore. You can ignore this warning for non-Microsoft Windows SMB3 storages.
- You can restore a VM with Virtual Hardware version 4 to any ESX(i) host. VMs with Virtual Hardware version 7 can be restored to ESX(i) 4.x hosts or later. VMs with Virtual Hardware version 8 can be restored to ESX(i) 5.x hosts or later.
