File level restore - backup server is VM

Post by withanh »

My Veeam Backup server is a VM and I need to do a file level restore. When I attempt this, it tells me that I need VMware Player installed. OK, no problem. I download VMware Player and go to install it. Oops, can't install inside a virtual machine.

Now what do I do?

Hello Darhl,

Please have a look at the following topic, hope it helps:

By the way, are you trying to do a File Level Restore for Linux VM? Because for Windows VM, you can easily use built-in mechanism of FLR (right click on the backup) that does not require VMware Player. However, for Linux VM please follow instructions that can be found at the link above.

Thank you

I am restoring a file from a Windows VM. I will try the "right click on a backup".

I will also look at the article you linked to.

Thanks Vitaliy!
