Before You Begin

Before you perform Instant VM Recovery, check the following prerequisites:

  • You can perform Instant VM Recovery for a VM that has been successfully backed up at least once.
  • You must have at least 10 GB of free disk space on the vPower NFS datastore to store virtual disk updates for the restored VM.

By default, Veeam Backup & Replication writes virtual disk updates to the NfsDatastore folder on a volume with the maximum amount of free space, for example,  C:\ProgramData\Veeam\Backup\NfsDatastore. The vPower cache is not used when you choose to redirect virtual disk updates to a VMware vSphere datastore in the vCloud Instant VM Recovery wizard.

  • If you are recovering a VM to the production network, make sure that the original VM is powered off to avoid conflicts.
  • Mind that during Instant VM Recovery, Veeam Backup & Replication restores standalone VMs as regular vCloud Director VMs.
