How to undo failover the virtual machine to Production Site at Veeam Backup and Replication v12

One method for completing failover is to use failover undo. When you undo failover, you return to the original VM from a VM replica. When a virtual machine replica is in the Failover state, Veeam Backup & Replication discards all changes made to the replica. This is because the Failover state is intended to be a temporary state used to restore the virtual machine to operation quickly in the event of a disaster.

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

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

3. Enter the MFA Confirmation code and click Confirm.

4. On the Home page, expand Replicas. Select Active.

5. Right-click the virtual machine and select Undo failover.

6. On the Veeam Backup and Replication display windows, select Force undo failover checkbox and click Yes.

7. On the Restore Session page, select Log.

8. Ensure the undo failover is completed successfully and click Closed.

9. On the Home page, expand Replicas and the virtual machine to regular type and Ready status.

10. The Machine is running on the Production Site Host (HV01) now.
