Yes, exactly. I am looking for a way to teach Veeam that all the backups associated with the old VM should now be associated with the new VM with the exact same name. Update foo set indexid = newid where indexid = oldid. It can't be much harder than that. And will certainly be less troublesome than being confronted by the likes of this two years from now (screenshot from the "Choose the virtual machine" pane in the FLR wizard):

Imagine having this happen a couple times and then having to try and remember "which iteration of testdb.noc was this backup taken from?"

Far better to have the option (not automatic, but the option) to merge backup families.

Hi Mike, you can match VM IDs in Veeam B&R database with the help of support.

How should Veeam know it's the same vm? Just by the name?
If one deletes a VM and creates (restores) a new now, this will be visible from the next backup (as in the screenshot), so you know from this point on it's a new vm. Even in 2 years you will still be able to see that, since the restore points before belong to the old vm. Don't really see the issue here.

As I said, by configuring Veeam to see it that way. I don't expect it to Just Happen.

Perhaps you were only looking but you did not see.

Hi Mike,

You are right, i actually missed the part where you said you would like to trick Veeam to think it's actually the same VM, my bad! Let's see if you will get it working

Where is any of this trickery? I restore a VM from a backup. That's the same VM. VMWare indexes it differently, which makes sense. From a functional perspective they are the same VM and it makes sense to be able to configure Veeam to see this when needed.
