Hi All.

I have all my vms on server1 and backed up Nas Box.

I have endpoint also installed on server 2 that has hyper V also.

When you try to restore a vm from the nasbox that you backed up from server1

Then on server 2 using endpoint do you need to create a vm to restore on to?

i.e
The vm i am trying to restore on my test server is call vmtest1 so i created a vm called vmtest1 before i perform the restore??

Thanks in advance for your help

Hi Marcus,

I am not sure I follow. You want to restore a physical server to a vm, right?

HI Guys,

When you are using veeam endpoint to restore a entire VM do you restore the backup vbm, vbx or vib file?


Also I have backed up all my vm to a nass box.

Now I want to restore to a hyper v machine on another server.

1. Do i need to create a new VM for this restore?

Thanks for all your help

When you are performing a bare metal recovery to a VM you have to create a VM first (or using existing one) with enough disk space to allocate the volume from the backup.

[MERGED] VM Restore

Veeam Logoby Marcus » Thu Aug 04, 2016 8:28 pm

Hi,

I have a virtual machine from server 1 backed up to a nas storage.

I want to restore the entire VM to my new server(2)

I have endpoint installed on new server(2).

Do I need to create a new VM to restore the backup of the entire VM on to or just use an existing VM?

Thanks in advance for your help

Hi Marcus,

May I ask, why you keep repeating the question that was previously answered in this thread? Were you able to test the proposed solution? Do you need any additional clarification? Thanks.
