Before You Begin

In this article

    Before you start the RHV VM restore process, mind the following limitations:

    • When you restore VMs using the Veeam Backup for RHV web console, you cannot select an RHV host for restore. The oVirt engine will select it according to the used cluster and storage domain.
    • If a VM added to the restore session contains multiple disks, Veeam Backup for RHV restores these disks sequentially, one disk at a time. VMs added to the restore session are processed in parallel.
    • SureBackup is not supported for backups created by Veeam Backup for RHV.
    • A VM restore from the latest backup snapshot makes a full backup instead of an incremental backup, because incremental backup checkpoints are associated with snapshots. Veeam Backup for RHV creates full backups first and an incremental backup in the next approach.
    • Veeam Backup for RHV supports VM backups with mixed virtual disks: RAW and QCOW2. You can create an incremental backup for virtual disks in the QCOW2 format. Virtual disks in the RAW format support only full backup. However, if a VM is powered off all virtual disks will be backed up in a full mode.
