Step 4. Configure Mapping Settings

In this article

    At the Disk Mapping step of the wizard, do the following:

    1. Choose a target VM to which you want to attach the restored disk.

    By default, Veeam Backup for RHV attaches the restored disk to the original VM. To attach the disk to another VM, click Browse.

    Important

    During disk restore, Veeam Backup for RHV turns off the target VM to reconfigure its settings and attach the restored disk. It is recommended that you stop all activities on the target VM till the restore session completes.

    1. Select a virtual disk to restore.

    By default, Veeam Backup for RHV attaches the restored disk to the target VM as a new disk. If you want the restored disk to replace the existing disk, or if you want to change the disk bus type and to specify a storage domain for the restored disk, click Change.

    Tip

    You can instruct Veeam Backup for RHV to restore the disk in the QCOW2 format. This will increase speed and efficiency of incremental backups further created for the VM.
