Step 11. Finalize Instant VM Recovery

In this article

    After the VMs have been successfully recovered, you must finalize the process. For this, test the recovered VMs and decide whether to migrate them to production environment or stop publishing.

    Testing Recovered VMs

    To test the recovered VMs before you migrate them to production, you can launch VMware Remote Console software from the Veeam Backup & Replication console.

    Important

    Before you launch VMware Remote Console, make sure that this software is installed on the machine where the Veeam Backup & Replication console runs.

    To open a VM console in Veeam Backup & Replication:

    1. Open the Home view.
    2. In the inventory pane, select the Instant Recovery node.
    3. In the working area, right-click a VM and select Open VM console.

    Step 11. Finalize Instant VM Recovery 

    Migrating Recovered VMs

    If the VMs were recovered successfully, you can migrate them to the production environment.

    To migrate a recovered VM to the production environment:

    1. Open the Home view.
    1. In the inventory pane, select the Instant Recovery node.
    1. In the working area, right-click a VM and select Migrate to production. Veeam Backup & Replication will launch the Quick Migration wizard.

    During migration, Veeam Backup & Replication will restore the VM from the backup file and additionally move all changes that were made while the VM was running from the backup in the Instant Recovery mode.

    Step 11. Finalize Instant VM Recovery 

    Stop Publishing Recovered VMs

    If your tests have failed, you can stop publishing the recovered VMs. This will remove the recovered VMs from the host that you selected as the destination for recovery. Note that all changes made in the recovered VMs will be lost.

    To stop publishing a recovered VM:

    1. Open the Home view.
    2. In the inventory pane, select the Instant Recovery node.
    3. In the working area, right-click a VM and select Stop publishing.

    There is a misspelling right here:

     

    I want to let the Veeam Documentation Team know about that.
