Unfortunately we cannot provide any ETA at the moment, but this feature has a high priority in our books.

I discovered this limitation today during a DR. I have an exchange server that is protected by veeam snapshot from netapp storage. When trying to perform an instant VM recovery it was informed this is not possible. Though that is a disappointment, what I need to know now is what options for recovery do I have? Can I still use these snapshots to recover the server just not instantly recover it?

Hi Jeff, do you have a regular backup of this VM as well? There are no limitations on restore from the Veeam backup files for such VMs.

No regular backups. The entire environment runs as a single job from storage snapshots. I know we can recover individual items but what we really want is VM instant recovery which is not possible with the storage integrated snapshots. I am fine creating new backup jobs that do not use the NetApp integrated snapshots I just need to know the next most efficient way to do this since moving everything to the same volume is an option.

By regular backup I mean backup job that creates a backup file (VBK) on the backup repository (either using data from storage snapshot or directly from datastore), not a snapshot-only job that produces a storage snapshot as the only outcome of its operation. The discussed limitation applies to restores from the snapshots, but you can restore from the backup file just fine (even if it was created using storage integration). If you do not have regular backups and just rely on the storage snapshot, you're not covered, since storage snapshot cannot be considered a real backup.
