Step 9. Finalize Instant VM Recovery

All VMs restored with Instant VM Recovery are displayed in the Backup & Replication view, under the Instant Recovery node.

To check the progress of Instant VM Recovery and view session details:

  1. Open the Backup & Replication view.
  2. In the inventory pane, click the Instant Recovery node.
  3. Right-click the VM in the working area and select Properties.

Alternatively, you can open the History view, select the Instant Recovery node under Restore in the inventory pane and double-click the necessary instant VM restore session.

After the VM has been successfully recovered, you can finalize Instant VM Recovery in one of two ways:

  • Migrate the recovered VM to production
  • Unpublish the recovered VM

To migrate the restored VM to production:

  1. Open the Backup & Replication view.
  2. In the inventory pane, select the Instant Recovery node.
  3. In the working area, right-click the VM and select Migrate to production. As a result, the Quick Migration wizard will be launched. During migration, Veeam Backup & Replication will restore a VM instance from the backup file and then additionally move the changes that were made while the VM was running in the Instant Recovery mode. For more information, see Migrating VMs.

Step 9. Finalize Instant VM Recovery Note:

Quick Migration will be performed using VMware vMotion technology.

To remove the recovered VM:

  1. Open the Backup & Replication view.
  2. In the inventory pane, select the Instant Recovery node.
  3. In the working area, right-click the VM and select Stop publishing.
