Restore VM to Proxmox VE

  • 23 November 2022

I am currently using Veeam Essentials
Our HCI is Nutanix and we have roughly about 28 VM’s on it

We are currently evaluating Proxmox VE

How can i restore full Backups of my critical VM’s to the Proxmox VE?

Use Veeam Agents to backup your Nutanix VMs.

Then create an empty VM in Proxmox and use the recovery media to do a bare metal restore.

Windows should work without big problems. Linux VMs can work too but sometimes they have issues in such restores.

As @Mildur said, in your case you need to use Veeam Agents. Veeam Backup & Replication doesn’t interact directly with the Proxmox hypervisor.

Only VMmware vShere, Microsoft Hyperv and Nutanix Acropolis are compatible nowadays.

I would just say up front that I may be somewhat of a VMware snob and don’t have any Proxmox experience, but I would not be using Proxmox in a business environment.  I don’t believe that it’s a mature enough product for mission critical workloads.  Honestly, as much as a dislike Hyper-V, I’d probably be looking at a well-built Hyper-V cluster before Proxmox, but VMware would easily by my top choice.  If you’re fine with being an early adopter, then perhaps Proxmox is an okay choice, but I would prefer more well-baked applications.

As for you question, as noted above, Veeam does not have integrations with Proxmox, so you’d be looking at agent backups and “bare-metal” restores.
