Running Failover Plans

You have the following options to run the failover plan:

  • You can fail over to latest restore point of VM replicas. To use this option, you must run the failover plan with the Start command.

Veeam Backup & Replication searches for the latest restore point of VM replicas across all replication jobs configured on the backup server. For example, you have 2 jobs that replicate the same VM: Job 1 has created the most recent point at 2:00 AM and Job 2 has created the most recent restore point at 3:00 AM. When you run the failover plan using the Start command, Veeam Backup & Replication will pick the restore point created at 3:00 AM with Job 2.

  • You can fail over to a specific restore point of VM replicas. To use this option, you must run the failover plan with the Start to command and select the necessary date when restore points for VM replicas were created.

To fail over to the latest restore point of VM replicas:

  1. Open the Home view.
  2. Expand the Replicas node.
  3. Select Failover Plans.
  4. In the working area, right-click the failover plan and select Start.

To fail over to a specific restore point of VM replicas:

  5. In the displayed window, select the backup date and time. Veeam Backup & Replication will find the closest restore point prior to the entered value for each VM and fail over to it.
