Using the Veeam agent for windows and associated recovery media, volumes can be separated or remapped to one or more logical disks. By mounting the agent recovery media in a new VM with 3 unallocated VMDK files, I was able to restore 3 volumes from one large raid disk on to 3 individual VMDK files, while shrinking the volumes at the same time. For this to work, I had to take the source backup with an windows agent. The recovery media from the agent will not display non-agent backups in a repository.
As far as I can tell, Veeam B&R for VMware does not offer a remap option when performing a VM restore without using an agent. One use case is P2V servers that end up with multiple volumes on a single VMDK. This can cause problems down the road for extending partitions. The remapping feature is a great way to reconfigure these VMs to allow for VMDK expansion.
