Veeam Logoby treisel » Wed Dec 10, 2014 3:09 pm

Hi,

this point is missing in the UI. this should be by Settings...
Of course it is under Tools in the program menue but the usability is smother if we can find it in the UI.
Thanks

Hi, Tom

Based on a similar feedback, we have already added the link that launches said wizard directly to the yellow warning stripe prompting you to create recovery appliance.

Thanks!

Hi May,

The recovery media should always be the same, isn't it? Why do you want to create it on regular basis? Also, I'm not sure I fully understand what do you mean create recovery media from the backup file? Do you want it to be embedded there?

Thanks!

Recovery media might get lost, so I need a new one. This should be createable from backup or is stored additionally with backup file.

There might HW-firmware upgrades with driver updates. An old recovery Image might not work. There should be an automatic recovery creation with this new drivers automatically.

Sven,

That is a good idea - added to the FR list. Thank you.

It’s not required in case of updates but I agree that it is necessary if the HW was changed.

Feature request: create recovery media from control panel

Veeam Logoby simonschilder » Thu Jan 15, 2015 9:33 am

Hi everyone.
First I'd like to express my congratulations to this new product.
Imho it fills the missing link in the backup products Veeam has.

I have a question/request: would it be possible to creat an option somewhere in the control panel to create the recovery medium. Now it seems like a separate program and I had to search for it (briefly though :) ). The first place I was looking for to find this option was in the settings and in the configure backup link, but didn't find it there.

Just an idea.

Thanks
