Restoring Entire VMs into vSphere Infrastructure

You can restore vCD VMs from the backup to the VMware vSphere infrastructure.

During restore, Veeam Backup & Replication neglects the vApp metadata saved to the backup file and performs a regular entire VM restore process. The VM is restored to the VMware vCenter Server or ESX(i) host and is not registered in VMware vCloud Director. vCloud-specific features such as fast provisioning are not supported for such type of restore.

To launch the Full VM Restore wizard, do one of the following:

  • On the Home tab, click Restore and select VMware. In the Restore from backup section, select Entire VM (including registration).
  • Open the Backup & Replication view, in the inventory pane select Backups. In the working area, expand the necessary backup, select the VM(s) you want to restore and click Entire VM > Into vSphere infrastructure on the ribbon.
  • Open the Virtual Machines view. In the inventory pane, expand the VMware vCloud Director hierarchy and select the VMware vCenter Server. In the working area, right-click the VM you want to restore and select Restore entire VM > Into vSphere infrastructure.

Entire VM restore of vCD VMs does not differ from entire VM restore of regular VMware VMs. For more information, see Performing Entire VM Restore.
