Instant Recovery Destination Options - Restoring a VM

Post by WORKS2019 » Sep 06, 2019 1:16 pm

Hi, I have a Server 2016 with Hyper-V and one VM is the Exchange server. I need to recover data from a VM backup around three weeks ago. My question is, while in Recovery Mode I have 2 options, 1. Restore to the original location or 2. Restore to a new location, or with different settings. Which is the best option without disrupting the current environment?

The Server is in full production so I don't want to interfere with this. Can I restore to the original location and this will run side by side with the current VM? It's my understanding this is an option with Veeam. Where I then could turn down the restored VM after I get the data.

Thank you in advance.

Hi,

You cannot choose option 1 since it will delete the original VM files. Thanks!

THANK YOU!

Other option I tried gives the error:

Virtual Machine Boot Summary
1. SCSI Disk: (0,0) No UEFI-compatible file system was found.

No operating system was loaded. Press a key to try the boot sequence...
Note: Configuration changes may require the virtual machine to be reset.
