Instant Restore from Restore Point located on AWS S3 Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 4

Userlevel 2
  • Comes here often

I am using Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 4.

My backups are sent to Amazon S3 buckets after 30 days.

I am trying to do a Instant VM recovery from a Restore Point located in the S3 bucket.

I ran the restore and the Log file is telling me.

Restore session 
Status: In progress.
Log (Last 2 lines)
<machine name> has been recovered successfully
Waiting for user to start migration

I don’t know where to go from here. I am having a hard time finding any documentation for this.

Using vSphere Client version

Any help would be appreciated.

Habe a look at the guide:

The instant recovery step has finished and the VM is usable now running from the restore point. All good up to this point.

In order to get the VM running from the “normal” datastore again you have to do the migration step. Then the VM is migrated back to the VMware or Hyper-V cluster.
