We use VeeamZip in our vm archival process. After a vm is veeamzipped it is removed from vmware inventory and even from Veeam Backups -> Disks (VeeamZip). Afterwards the backup file is manually moved to an archive folder next to the backup repository. In case someone want to check something within the vm after removing it we reimport the backup and we are able to do any restore operation. But if we do an instant recovery in a remote site with an imported VeeamZip backup the backup file is mounted to the Veeam server in local site instead of using the local repository server, proxy server or managed server (from which the backup was imported) as nfs mount point. It seems to me that due to removing the VeeamZip backup from Backups the link to the original repository is lost. So my questions are:
- Is there a way to restore the link to repository assuming that the backup file already resides in a subfolder within a repository? Maybe with generating vbm file for that backup in order to import it as an ordinary backup?
- Perhaps it would be an option to mount the VeeamZip file to the managed server as importing backups is only possible through managed servers anyway!?
