Step 7. Choose Restore Options

[This step applies only if you have included at least one restore plan in the Plans to test list at the Choose Plans step of the wizard]

At the Restore Options step of the wizard, choose whether you want to verify both backups of plan VMs and the recovery location used to restore the VMs, or backups only.

  • If you select the Quick test option, VAO will check whether VMs included in the plan will be able to recover from their backup files.

In this case, plan VMs will be verified in the Instant VM Recovery environment.

  • If you select the Full test option, VAO will not only verify that VM backups are ready-to-use, but also check that the recovery location to which the VMs will be restored is available and has enough resources to support the recovery process.

    In both cases, VAO will run all verification steps added to the plan to make sure that the plan will be able to complete successfully.



    For a test to run successfully, you must map isolated networks of the virtual lab to all source and target networks present in the network mapping table of the selected recovery location.

    To do that, configure the Isolated Networks settings of the virtual lab in the Veeam Backup & Replication console, as described in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide, section Recovery Verification.

I want to report a typo

There is a misspelling right here:


I want to let the Veeam Documentation Team know about that.
