Undoing Failover

When you undo failover, Veeam Backup & Replication reverts the VM replica to its pre-failover state, powers it off, and deletes all changes that have taken place since the VM replica was powered on. You can use the production VM and perform its replication as usual.

Procedure

To undo failover:

  1. Open the Backup & Replication view.
  2. Select the Replicas node in the inventory pane.
  3. Right-click the VM and select Undo Failover.
  4. In the displayed dialog box, click Yes.
