Shrinking a VM when restoring

Veeam Logoby dtwiley » Thu Feb 23, 2017 9:53 am

I've got a client who recently did a P2V (VMWare Converter) of a server but forgot to resize the volumes.

I'm sure the way forward was to either V2V (VMWare Converter) or use Veeam B&R to restore the VM from a backup and have it resized at the same time.

There appears to be a feature in the free version to resize on restore but no on the full version which they have?

The plan was to run this tomorrow night for real but the dry run today has failed as we can't find any way to resize on restore.

Help greatly appreciated.

Hi,

I'm not sure what product and what feature you're referring to, please elaborate. Veeam Endpoint Backup allows you to resize volumes, not VBR.

Thank you.
