Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5
User Guide for VMware vSphere

Manual Recovery Verification

Beside automatic recovery verification, you can perform manual verification of VM backups. Manual verification can be performed with all editions of Veeam Backup & Replication.

Boot Test

To perform a VM boot test, perform Instant VM Recovery for the verified VM. Power on the VM but do not connect the VM to the production network to avoid conflicts with the original VM.

Application Test

To perform an application test:

  1. Create an isolated network.
  2. Use the Instant VM Recovery wizard to restore the verified VM. At the Ready to Apply step of the wizard, clear the Connect VM to network check box.
  3. When the VM is started, connect it to the isolated network.

The same procedure must be performed for all VMs that run applications on which the verified VM is dependent such as domain controller and DNS. All VMs must be connected to the same isolated network and started in the correct order: for example, DNS > domain controller > verified VM.
