FSx Restore Using Web UI

In case of a disaster, you can restore a FSx file system from a FSx backup or backup copy. Veeam Backup for AWS allows you to restore one or more file systems at a time, to the original location or to a new location. To learn how FSx restore works, see FSx Restore.


Consider the following:

  • Veeam Backup for AWS supports restore of FSx file systems only to the same AWS accounts to which the source file systems belong.
  • Veeam Backup for AWS supports restore of Amazon FSx for Windows File Server file systems. However, before you start a restore operation, it is recommended that you use the Amazon FSx Active Directory Validation tool to check the connection between the file systems that you plan to restore and the Microsoft Active Directories to which these file systems will be joined. To learn how to use the validation tool, see AWS Documentation.
