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 datastore where write cache folder is located. This disk space is required to store virtual disk updates for the restored VM.

By default, Veeam Backup & Replication writes virtual disk updates to the IRCache folder on a volume with the maximum amount of free space, for example, C:\ProgramData\Veeam\Backup\IRCache. The write cache is not used when you select to redirect virtual disk updates to a VMware vSphere datastore when configuring the job.

  • 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.
