Veeam Backup & Replication 9.0
Evaluator's Guide for Microsoft Hyper-V

Committing Failback

When you commit failback, you confirm that you want to get back to the production VM. Veeam Backup & Replication resumes replication activities for the VM to which you failed back.

The failback protective checkpoint that saves the pre-failback state of a VM replica is not deleted — Veeam Backup & Replication uses this checkpoint as an additional restore point for VM replica. With the pre-failback checkpoint, Veeam Backup & Replication needs to transfer less changes and therefore puts less load on the network when replication activities are resumed.

Procedure

  1. Open the Backup & Replication view.
  2. Select the Replicas node in the inventory pane.
  3. Right-click the VM and select Commit Failback.
