Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5
Evaluator's Guide for VMware vSphere

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 snapshot that saves the pre-failback state of a VM replica is not deleted — Veeam Backup & Replication uses this snapshot as an additional restore point for VM replica. With the pre-failback snapshot, 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. in the inventory pane, select the Replicas node.
  3. Right-click the VM and select Commit Failback.
  4. In the displayed dialog box, click Yes.
