Rescanning Backups

You can import backups created by another Nutanix AHV backup appliance and use them to restore VMs and VM disks.


When you import backups, the jobs that produced those backups are not re-created. To re-create the jobs, restore the Nutanix AHV backup appliance configuration as described in section Restoring Configuration Data.

To import Nutanix AHV VM backups, do the following:

  1. Ensure that the Nutanix AHV backup appliance has access to repositories where the necessary backups are stored.
  2. Switch to the Configuration page.
  3. Navigate to Backup Server.
  4. Click Rescan Backups.

The Nutanix AHV backup appliance will scan the repositories and import all Nutanix AHV VM backups created by Veeam Backup for Nutanix AHV. To track the progress of the import operation, click Go to Sessions.

To see the list of imported backups, switch to the Protected VMs page.
