Step 2. Select Workloads

In this article

    At the Machines step of the wizard, select one or more workloads that you want to recover.

    To select workloads:

    1. Click Add.
    2. [For VMware vSphere VMs and vCloud Director VMs] Select where to browse for VMs:
    • From infrastructure — browse the virtual environment and select VMs or VM containers (hosts, clusters, folders, resource pools, VirtualApps, datastores or tags) to restore. If you select a VM container, Veeam Backup & Replication will expand it to a plain VM list.

    When you add a VM to the list, Veeam Backup & Replication displays information about the most recent restore point in the Restore point column. If no restore point is available for the added VM, Veeam Backup & Replication displays a warning next to this VM.

    • From backup — browse existing backups and select virtual machines from backups.
    1. [For other workloads] In the list of backup jobs, expand a job and select workloads.
    2. Click Add.

    To quickly find workloads within the created backups, you can use the search field at the Machines step of the wizard:

    1. Enter a workload name or a part of it in the search field. Veeam Backup & Replication will display matches.
    2. If the workload is not in the list, click the Show more link to browse the backups.
