Running Failback Tip:

Failback operations are not supported for deployment scenarios in which you configure replication jobs on a Veeam Backup & Replication server connected to a Production VAO server.

However, you can perform failback using the embedded Veeam Backup & Replication server in the DR site:

1. Create a replication job on the server.
As a source for the job, select VMs in the DR site.
As a target for the job, select VMs in the Production site. To do that, configure replica mapping following the instructions provided in section Creating Replication Jobs of the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.

2. After the replication job finishes, run the permanent failover process as described in section Performing Permanent Failover of the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.
