Step 5. Select Data to Restore
By default, AWS Plug-in for Veeam Backup & Replication restores configuration data for existing infrastructure components, created backup policies, configured global settings, and also the following data:
- VPC backup configuration — data on restore points that VPC configuration backup policy created.
- Local users — data on local user accounts existing on the Veeam Backup for AWS appliance. For more information on local users, see the Adding User Accounts section in the Veeam Backup for AWS User Guide.
If you exclude data on local users, AWS Plug-in for Veeam Backup & Replication will not overwrite local users and the appliance to which you restore the configuration will have the already existing local users.
- Session history — data on policy sessions and restore sessions.
At the Restore Options step of the wizard, ensure that check boxes are selected near the data you want to restore. If you you want to exclude some data from restore, clear the necessary check boxes.
[If you do not restore local users] After you click Next, the restore process will start. You will not be able to stop the process or edit the restore settings.
