Importing Backups

If you remove the RHV backup proxy from the backup infrastructure and connect a new one, you can import backups created by the old proxy and use them to restore VMs and VM disks.


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

To import RHV VM backups, do the following:

  1. Ensure that the RHV backup proxy has access to repositories where the necessary backups are stored.
  2. Click the Settings icon at the top right corner of the RHV backup proxy web console, and select Manage Backup Server.
  3. Click Import Backups and then click Proceed.

The RHV backup proxy will scan the repositories and import all RHV VM backups created by Veeam Backup for RHV. You can track the progress of the import operation on the Events page.

To see the list of imported backups, switch to the Protected VMs page and click View as tree.
