File restore to original server

Post by morefeo » Sep 24, 2018 4:30 pm


We have some Nutanix AHV clusters, and we are taking a look at Veeam for backup.

We are doing a proof of concept, and we are seeing that we are not able to perform file level restore directly to the VM.

As in documentation (https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/van/u ... tml?ver=10) when we try to restore a file, the option "Restore" is greyed out, and we can only choose "Copy to".

Is this the normal behaviour? Is it not possible to restore to the VM?

Guest VM is Windows.

Thank you.

This is correct in the v1/currently available product - and it is different than the Hyper-V and vSphere backups. I don't have a timeline but can note that this is intended to be addressed in subsequent releases.

Did this change with the November 2018 release?

Nope, it's still the case. Thanks!
