At the Helper Appliance step of the wizard, select an ESXi host to which the clone/virtual copy of the storage snapshot will be mounted. On the selected ESXi host, Veeam Backup & Replication will also place a helper appliance and mount disks of the restored VM to this helper appliance.
To specify a destination for the snapshot clone/virtual copy and helper appliance:
- Click the Customize link at the bottom of the window.
- In the Host field of the FLR Appliance Configuration window, select an ESXi host to which the snapshot clone must be mounted and on which the helper appliance must be registered.
- In the Resource pool field, specify a resource pool to which you want to place the helper appliance.
- In the Network section, specify an IP address and other network settings for the helper appliance. The helper appliance must be placed in the same network where the backup server resides.
- To enable FTP access to the restored file system, select the Enable FTP server on appliance check box. As a result, your users will be able to access the helper appliance via FTP, browse the file system of the restored VM and download files on their own.
- If you are restoring a VM with the Novell Storage Services file system, select the Restore from Novell Storage Services (NSS) file system check box. Veeam Backup & Replication will deploy a specific helper appliance that supports the Novell Storage Services file system.
- Click OK.
When choosing an ESXi host for the helper appliance used for file-level restore from the Novell Storage Services file system, make sure that it allows running VMs with 64-bit guest OSes.
