I'm using VEB (1.5) to backup Veem 9 server on DDboost repo. I just wonder how to do a bare metal restore in case of server failure. In fact if I boot with VEB usb media I cannot directly connect the DDboost repo but I should provide the IP of the Veeam server itsefl (that is the server that I'm trying to restore at in that moment).
So I assume I should: 1. Reinstall Windows 2012 OS 2. Reinstall Veeam B&R 3. Restore Veeam B&R database (it's saved daily on Data Domain). This should restore also the DDboost repo. 4. Recover the files or Veeam One database from VEB backup stored on DDboost repo.

Thanks. It looks like it case of a total disaster you need to set up a new VBR server, create a new DD boots repository and the import the excising backups to the said repository. Once done, start VEB’s Bare Metal Restore and connect to the newly created VBR repo. Backup files should be visible.
