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

Step 4. Specify Instance Name

At the Name step of the wizard, you can:

Specifying Instance Name

Veeam Backup & Replication restores the machine to Amazon EC2 as an instance. An instance is a virtual machine in Amazon EC2 with a preconfigured combination of computing resources. By default, Veeam Backup & Replication uses the original machine name for the target instance. However, you can define a new name for the instance if necessary.

To define a new name for the instance:

  1. In the Machines to restore list, select the machine and click VM name.
  2. In the Change Name window, enter a new name explicitly or specify a change name rule — add a prefix and/or suffix to the original machine name.

Step 4. Specify Instance Name  

Managing AWS Tags for Machine

You can use AWS tags to categorize instances in Amazon EC2. A tag is a label with metadata that includes two properties: a key and a value. For more information on AWS tags, see the Amazon AWS documentation.

By default, Veeam Backup & Replication adds the Original name and Restore start time tags for the target instance. However, you can modify or delete these tags, or add new ones.

To add a new tag:

  1. In the Machines to restore list, select the machine and click Tags.
  2. In the Tags window, click Add.
  3. In the EC2 VM Tag window, specify the Key and Value properties.

Note that you cannot add the tag with the Name key. Veeam Backup & Replication uses the Name tag to set the name for the target instance in Amazon EC2.

To modify a tag:

  1. In the Machines to restore list, select the machine and click Tags.
  2. In the Tags window, select the needed tag and click Edit.
  3. In the EC2 VM Tag window, edit the Key or Value properties.

To delete a tag:

  1. In the Machines to restore list, select the machine and click Tags.
  2. In the Tags window, select the needed tag and click Remove.

Step 4. Specify Instance Name Note:

If you restore a machine from backups of an EC2 instance, Veeam Backup & Replication displays tags that were assigned to this instance. You can modify or delete these tags as well.
