Restoring from Offsite Repository

Veeam Logoby rogerdu » Tue Oct 18, 2016 8:18 pm

I have configured Backup copies (2) in teh following manner:
- Original backup - Local Backup repository
- Local Backup Copy - based on Original Backup, Copy to Local SOBR, 7 year retention on monthly fulls
- Remote Backup Copy - based on Original Backup, Copy to remote SOBR, 7 year retention on monthly fulls

I am trying to do a restore from the Remote Backup Copy to the remote ESXi server (as a seed for replication)... How would I initiate the restore (IE how do I select the backup image in the remote SOBR)?

OR am I in trouble... I just read this from the manual...
If you select a backup job as a source for the backup copy job, Veeam Backup & Replication will only copy restore points created by this very backup job. Veeam Backup & Replication will not perform search in other backup repositories.

Not sure where the confusion comes from. You just select the corresponding backup and click Restore or, even more simple, you can specify the remote repository to be used for replica seeding right in the replication job.

Thanks Foggy, but it appears that one cannot use a SOBR as a seed... I tried. I'll try again though and report back.

It is as I thought... I can only select the 2 "regular" Backup Repositories... I cannot use a Scale Out Backup Repository as a seed source... Intended? Bug?

The restore thing seems to be working this time... it helps when you attempt to restore from the right source... thanks!

You're correct, missed that. However you can perform restore manually prior to running replication.
