Restoring Configuration Data Using Web UI

To restore the configuration database of a backup appliance using the Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure Web UI, do the following:

  1. Launch the Configuration Restore wizard.
  2. Choose a backup file.
  3. Review the backup file info.
  4. Choose restore options.
  5. Track the restore progress.
  6. View the results of verification steps.
  7. Finish working with the wizard.


Consider the following:

  • Before you start the restore process, stop all policies that are currently running.
  • If your backup appliance is managed by a Veeam Backup & Replication server, you will not be able to restore the configuration of Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure from the Web UI. In this case, you can perform configuration restore using the Veeam Backup & Replication console as described in section Restoring Configuration Data Using Console.

After Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure performs configuration restore, it rescans the whole infrastructure to detect obsolete snapshots. These snapshots are then removed from the configuration database according to the specified global retention settings.
