If you have System Center Virtual Machine Manager, you can use that to do a V2V conversion as well. That's what I used back in the day

[MERGED] Cross-Hypervisior backup/restore

Veeam Logoby ftbug » Tue Jun 14, 2016 1:50 pm

Hi, we are currently looking to on-board a customer who is using Veeam to back up their hyper-v infrastructure. We are largely VMware based, and was wondering if files backed-up from a hyper-v infrastructure can be restored into a VMware infrastructure and vice-versa?

thanks in advance

It is not possible to import directly from Veeam to a different platform than the original as the file/VM formats are different.

I like to use StarWind V2V to convert between VMWare and Hyper-V 8)

Can I just confirm this is 'final' and there isn't a workaround - you say "import directly" - how about just restoring?

As per ftbug, we are looking at onboarding a customer that might be using Hyper-V, but we'd like to backup to our datacentre (and have the ability to restore to VMWare - as we use VMWare) - is there no way around this using Veeam? Would we need a Hyper-V host specifically to restore to?

Correct.

Yep, in order to backup/restore VMs similar hypervisor platform is needed.

It's been 6 months or so and I"m sure this information hasn't changed, but I just wanted to ask to be sure. It is still not possible to backup from Hyper-v and restore to VMware, right?
Thanks,

Hi Jack,

Not directly today. Although there are many possibilities to achieve this. One being restoring the VMDK files only and then do an offline P2V (many solutions out there, including free ones) to make it a Hyper-V virtual machine.

That said, there are some good conversations within the team on this specific scenario. Considering we are already supporting restore any Veeam backup to Microsoft Azure this seems (to me) a logical step. However, can you let us know (every bit of information helps in conversations) what your specific scenario and reason is?

Thanks
Mike

Nope, you cannot restore backup of vSphere VM to Hyper-V host.

Windows VM can be backed up with Veeam Agent for Windows and then instantly restored to Hyper-V host.
