How to restore the Entire VM to the Original Location with Secure Restore at Veeam Backup and Replication v12

If the original VM fails, you can use Veeam Backup & Replication to restore an entire VM from a backup file to the most recent state or a previous point.

Before the entire VM restore can occur, the VM image must be fully extracted to the production storage. Veeam Backup & Replication copies the VM data from the backup repository to the chosen storage, registers the VM on the desired Hyper-V host, and, if necessary, powers it on.

Veeam Backup & Replication supports secure restore, which involves scanning machine data with antivirus software before restoring the computer to the production environment.

1. Login to the Veeam Backup and replication manager server.

2. Open the Veeam Backup & Replication 12 Console and click Connect.

3. Enter the MFA Confirmation code and click Confirm.
