Restore VEB backup with VB&R

Post by marcozaro » Sep 08, 2015 3:28 pm

Good morning , will it be possible to restore VEB backup file with VB&R 7 or 8 to get in a fast way a VM into our VMWARE cluster , in case my collegue have problem with their notebook and i cannot repair it quickly ?
my idea is to buy a spare cheap laptop or a chrome book for external user (sales people located far away from the central site) and restore backup file as a vm so the user can access via RDP their old pc converted in a VM , or use their private pc to do that....read as a kind of cheap/fast continuum service.....
if it is not possible there is a quick way to convert the veb file to a vmware vm ?

Hi,

This thing might help you to accomplish what you want. However, you'll need VBR v8 update 2.

Thanks.

Hello,

this way work very well. At this way I converted some physical clients and one server. The only difference is, that I work with hyper-v and vhdx.

Greetings

Using full manage mode you can place a VEB backup file into default free VBR local repo and preform a restore, however you'll not be able to use free VBR repo as a target for VEB jobs. Go to Options - View - Full functionality (advanced)

Additional option is to double click the backup file (.vbk) and chose the needed restore method from the dropdown. By the way – don’t forget that installing VEB and VBR within one machine is supported :wink:
