You will need to add it as a regular repository not as cloud repository (not under tenant's credentials). Thanks.

Re: Restore to Azure from Cloud Connect

Post by randerson999 » Aug 14, 2018 1:27 pm

Yes, I have it as a normal repository since the new VB&R server AND the VCCe server (which holds the VCC backups) are both in Azure.

So the architecture is: On-Prem VB&R backs up up to Azure VCCe VM using Veeam Cloud Connect. Newly built Azure VB&R VM points to Backup Repository on Azure VCCe VM (with local storage). New Azure VB&R VM "sees" the repository and the backups but when you try to restore a VM to a "new location" there is no "destination host" to select - the Azure VB&R server is not registered with a vCenter, so where does it restore to?

At this point, Veeam Cloud Connect is not in scope - we simply have a VB&R server in Azure that has access to Veeam backups (which happen to be on the VCCe VM, but they could be anywhere). So the question still remains .. how do you restore those Veeam backups within Azure? I must be missing something!

*EDIT - is the "Restore entire VM" option only viable when restoring on-prem? When restoring within Azure (ie. the VB&R VM and the Veeam backups themselves are both within Azure, like in our scenario) can you only use the "Restore to Microsoft Azure" option?

Are there any vSphere or Hyper-V hosts registered on that backup server? If yes, you can restore backups to them.

Right-click on required backup -> Restore to Microsoft Azure.

Thanks.

Thank you for your continued input v.Eremin. Using "Restore to Microsoft Azure" was indeed the solution .. it sounds slightly counter-intuitive when you are already in Azure, but that option must already include the built-in API/vCenter calls to be able to interface with Azure and restore into your Azure cloud instance. I was able to restore our Azure-stored Veeam Backups (on the VCCe VM in Azure) as VMs in our Azure instance using our Azure-based VB&R server, which is what our ultimate goal was - this proves that in the event of an on-prem DR event you can effectively restore your Veeam backups stored in the cloud directly into Azure.

Thanks!

Since backup server knows little about its location (Azure/on-prem, etc.) and the feature concerns more with restoration target rather than with backup server placement, we've named the option this way.

Anyway, good to know you've figured that out.

Let us know, should other clarification be needed.

Thanks.

Which one? Ability for tenant to restore VMs stored in cloud repository to Azure? No updates since my last reply. Thanks!

What's about self made VPS, will it work there?

Can you elaborate on your scenario a bit? Thanks!
