Using Restorepoints from Replica

Post by gmeurb » Jul 11, 2016 1:36 pm


i´ve a question regarding restorepoints from Replicas and what is hapened after using this. I´m using VBR 9.

If I use the Restore Wizard, i do following steps:

- Restore from replica
- failover to replica
- add needed virtual machine from Replica and needed restorepoint

So, what is going on if i do this?

Did the replicated ( and offline) machine change to the selected restorepoint or is anything happened to the active machine?

Thanks a lot

Hi Eric, the original VM is not affected in any way during failover. Veeam B&R just rolls back the VM replica to the required restore point (by reverting it to the corresponding snapshot in the replica VM chain).

Can you elaborate on what you're trying to achieve? If you specify a particular restore point a replica machine should be failed over to, nothing will happen to production VM, unless planned failover is used - in that case, a production VM will be powered off and latest changes will be synced. Thanks.
