Before You Begin

Before you begin restore to Microsoft Azure, check the following prerequisites:

  • Check limitations listed in section Limitations for Restore to Microsoft Azure.
  • You must create a backup of the workload that you want to restore in Microsoft Azure. For the list of supported backups, see Restore to Microsoft Azure.
  • A backup chain from which you plan to restore a workload must reside in a backup repository added to the backup infrastructure. You can also import a backup to the Veeam Backup & Replication console. For more information, see Importing Backups.
  • You must configure the following objects in Microsoft Azure beforehand:
    • Storage account whose resources you plan to use to store disks of the restored workload.
    • Networks to which you plan to connect the restored workload.
  • [For speeding up restore from Capacity Tier] It is strongly recommended to use Azure restore proxy appliance when you restore from backups residing on a Capacity Tier. For more information on Azure restore proxy appliances, see Managing Microsoft Azure Restore Proxy Appliances.
  • You must set up correct time on the backup server. Otherwise you may not be able to add a Microsoft Azure Compute account or Microsoft Azure Stack Hub Compute account to Veeam Backup & Replication, or the restore process may fail.
