Data Recovery

  • In Veeam Backup & Replication console, you cannot perform full restore of VMs to AHV cluster. You can perform full VM restore only in the web UI of Veeam Availability for Nutanix AHV. For details, see Restoring VMs.
  • In Veeam Backup & Replication console, you can perform granular VM data restore. For details, see Performing Granular VM Data Restore.
  • To perform Linux file level restore (FLR), you need to add a VMware or Hyper-V host to the Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure.
  • Linux FLR and Windows FLR do not support restoring files and folders to original location. You can restore files to another location and copy them to original location.
  • Instant recovery is supported for VMs created by the proxy appliance with a Hyper-V host. The Hyper-V host must be added to the Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure.

Instant recovery does not work with AHV hosts/clusters due to AHV restrictions. VM snapshots in AHV offer fast restore if they are available.
