Step 4. Specify Data Source
You can select a data source from which Veeam Backup & Replication will read VM data:
- At the Virtual Machines step of the wizard, click Source.
- In the Source Repositories window, select one of the following options:
- From production storage. In this case, Veeam Backup & Replication will retrieve VM data from datastores connected to the source ESXi host.
- From backup files. In this case, Veeam Backup & Replication will read VM data from the backup chain already existing in the selected backup repository. This option can be used in the replica from backup scenario. For more information, see Replica from Backup.
