Restore VM to a different VMware version

Post by marieelieg »

Hello,
Can Veeam restore a VM that was backed up from an older vSphere version to a newer vSphere version?
Of course the VM hardware version must be supported by both vSphere versions, but my question is if Veeam can handle/supports this scenario?
Thanks! :)

Restore/replication in the opposite direction is also possible. The rule of thumb here is VM hardware version compatibility.
