Step 10. Finalize Instant Recovery

After the VMs was recovered, you can finalize the process. Depending on the test results you can decide whether to migrate VMs to production environment or stop publishing.

Migrating Recovered VMs

When Veeam Backup & Replication migrates VMs, it transfers VM disk data to the production storage that you have selected as a destination for the recovered VMs.

To migrate a recovered VM to production, do the following:

  1. Open the Home view.
  2. In the inventory pane, select the Instant Recovery node.
  3. In the working area, right-click a VM and select Migrate to production.

Step 10. Finalize Instant Recovery 

Stop Publishing Recovered VMs

If your tests have failed, you can stop publishing the recovered VMs. This will remove the recovered VMs from the storage that you selected as the destination for recovery.


If the destination is the original location, both the original and recovered VMs are removed.

To remove a recovered VM, in the working area, right-click a VM and select Stop publishing
