Step 3. Select Recovery Location

In this article

    At the Recovery Location step of the wizard, select a location to which VMs groups included in the plan will be restored.

    For a recovery location to be displayed in the list of available recovery locations, it must be created and included into the list of plan components available for the scope, as described in section Managing Recovery Locations.

     

    Tips

    1. For the test to run successfully, you must map isolated networks of the virtual lab to all target networks present in the network mapping table of the selected recovery location. In case you want any of the recovered VMs to be connected to the same networks as the source VMs, you must map isolated networks of the virtual lab to those source networks.

    To do that, configure the Isolated Networks settings of the virtual lab in the Veeam Backup & Replication console, as described in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide, section Recovery Verification.

    1. If you have selected the Quick Test option at the Test Method step of the wizard, you can only select a location that has Instant VM Recovery enabled. If you want to test the plan using a location with Instant VM Recovery enabled (location A) but then to restore to a location with Instant VM Recovery disabled (location B), clone the location B and change the Instant VM Recovery setting for the clone. Then, use the location A for testing and the location B for the recovery.
