Full vm restore not connecting NIC

Post by maol »

Hello,
i'm trying to do a full vm restore using:

POST http://<Enterprise-Manager>:9399/api/vmRestorePoints/{ID}?action=restore

everyting works fine except that the restored VM come up with the NIC disconnected.

is there a way to make Veeam to restore the VM with the NIC connected?

i saw that I can use

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<RestoreSpec xmlns="http://www.veeam.com/ent/v1.0" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
 <VmRestoreSpec>
   <PowerOnAfterRestore>false</PowerOnAfterRestore>
   <QuickRollback>false</QuickRollback>
 </VmRestoreSpec>
</RestoreSpec>
in order to power on the VM, is there some <ConennectAtPoweron> tag or something like that?

Thanks
Lorenzo

Hi Lorenzo,

I'm not aware of this setting within the Enterprise Manager REST API. Here is a link to our API documentation showing all available parameters for the API call in question.

Hello,

Is this specification still ongoing?
The network is connected when I restore using Enterprise Manager(UI).
The NIC remains disconnect when I use Rest full API.

Thanks

This setting hasn't changed so far, as you can see in our up-to-date documentation. Cheers!

Hi Oleg,

Thank you for your quick reply.

However, what kind of technical reason why Restfull API do not connect NIC on the other hand I can connect NIC when I restore a VM using UI from Veeam Enterprise Manager?
so additional Vm's infromation that given statick MAC address.

Cheers

Already fixed. Check the corresponding thread on the internal forum ("Network is disconnected after VM restore with REST API"). Thanks!
