Running Failover Plans

In this article

    You have the following options to run a failover plan:

    • You can fail over to latest restore points of VM replicas.

    In this case, 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 specific restore points of VM replicas.

    Failing Over to Latest Restore Points

    To fail over to the latest restore points 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.

    Failing Over to Specific Restore Points

    To fail over to specific restore points 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.
    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 will fail over to it.

    I want to report a typo

    There is a misspelling right here:

     

    I want to let the Veeam Documentation Team know about that.
