Issues with restore of vm - restore point mismatch

Veeam Logoby jja » Mon Apr 20, 2015 5:30 am

Hi!

I have a Linux vm I'm trying to restore.
The backup report from the day I'm trying to restore from shows backup Success with data copied etc. (April 14, 2015).
When I run the restore wizard, the newest restore point is July 01, 2014.

Anyone got any hints before I contact support?

Jannis, you'd better contact support, to avoid wild guesses. Do you probably have two VMs with the same name in this job (probably the VM was re-added into the job some time before)?

The same vm, but it was deleted and restored once before.
I have registered a support case as well.
Case #00882197

Then there should be another entry with the same name available for restore. Those 77 restore points on the screenshots were most likely created prior the VM was deleted.

Found the second vm with the same name in the same job now.
That one had the correct restore points.
Thanks!

Any way I can remove the deprecated restore points?

They will be automatically removed according to your retention settings. However, if you do not need those files, you can delete them from disk manually (corresponding records will still be displayed in Veeam B&R UI until retention applies).
