Veeam Application for Restore only?

Post by vsupp » Mar 01, 2018 7:19 am

Veeam Backup and Replication is installed on our backup server and we are securing a backup every month to an external harddisk.

I also want to be able to restore files from the external disk on my client and not only on the server. Do i need to install backup and replication on
all clients i want to restore from or is there a slim restore only product i can use?

Because Backup and Replication includes way too much stuff and i really only want to restore from my client.

Hi vsupp and welcome to the community!

You can install Backup & Replication console for the item restore operations, it is much lightweight than the Veeam B&R server and contains mount server component that is necessary to achieve what you're after. Thanks!

I havent quite figured that out yet.

Yes, but keep in mind the connection between console and VBR server should be established. Thanks!

There's also an independent extract.exe tool that can be used for restore without installing any Veeam B&R components at all.
