- Is it possible to backup more than one VM simultaneously in one backup job?
- When backup to tape is used. What is the restore procedure when content is needed from tape?
Looking forward to hearing from you.

No, you need to configure multiple jobs to run VMs backups simultaneously.ief wrote:- Is it possible to backup more than one VM simultaneously in one backup job?
As soon as you move backup files from tapes, just import them to the backup console and perform a restore procedure.ief wrote:- When backup to tape is used. What is the restore procedure when content is needed from tape?

Just note the major caveat that the "extract.exe" can't restore incremental backups, only a full VBK. Not a problem if you use reverse incrementals and copy the VBK each night, but a big issue if you use the default incremental backup and only copy the VIB file to tape each night (the recommended option for tape backups by Veeam).Alexey D. wrote:As for question 2:
You don't even need to have B&R console to do a restore. There's a tiny "extract.exe" utility which can be put to tape along with VBK file. For more information, please refer to this topic.
