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

Before You Begin

Before you restore a VM from a backup, consider the following:

  • You can restore a VM from a backup that has at least one successfully created restore point.
  • If you restore a VM to its original location and the original VM is still running, Veeam Backup & Replication will power off the original VM and delete it before the restore.
  • 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.
  • When you restore a VM, mind the Virtual Hardware version compatibility. For more information, see this VMware KB article.
