Step 3. Choose Recovery Options

At the Recovery Options step, specify whether you want to recover machines from VM backups, Veeam agent backups or both.

You can also choose whether you want to enable Instant VM Recovery for the location. With Instant VM Recovery, all processed machines will be immediately restored in the location by running directly from the backup files. Instant VM Recovery helps improve recovery time objectives (RTO), minimize disruption and downtime of the machines. For more information on the Instant VM Recovery feature, see the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide, section Instant VM Recovery.

Note that the Instant VM Recovery option is enabled by default (and you cannot disable it) when you recover machines from Veeam agent backups.


Orchestrator currently supports recovering machines protected by Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows and Veeam Agent for Linux only.
