Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 4
User Guide for VMware vSphere

Before You Begin

Before you restore a VM from a backup, 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 restore only the disks included in the backup file. All other disks and VM configuration will not be changed.
  • If you want to scan VM data for viruses, check the secure restore requirements and limitations.
  • If you want to run an executable script for a VM, check the staged restore requirements and limitations.
  • On non-Microsoft Windows SMB3 storage, 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 storage.
  • When you restore a VM, mind the Virtual Hardware version compatibility. For more information, see https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/2007240.
