Step 2. Choose Backup File

At the Configuration Backup step of the wizard, do the following:

  1. From the Backup repository list, select the backup server or backup repository where the necessary configuration backup file is stored.

For a backup repository to be displayed in the Backup repository list, it must be added to the backup infrastructure as described in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide, section Backup Repository. Note that the repository list does not include scale-out backup repositories and external repositories as they cannot store configuration backup files.


Configuration restore is supported for backup appliances version 3.0 or 3a only if their configuration backup files are stored on the backup server.

  1. Click Browse and select the necessary file in the Select file window.

If the selected configuration backup file is not stored on the backup server, Veeam Backup for Nutanix AHV will copy the file to a temporary folder on the server and automatically delete it from the folder as soon as the restore process completes.
