Full VM Recovery to ESXi Host or vCenter Server

What is a full VM recovery?

In the case of VM failure, full VM recovery gives you the ability to recover the entire VM from the backup to the latest state or any valid point in time. You can recover the VM in exactly the same state as it was during the backup, including its configuration.

You can recover the VM to the original location or to any other location in your local or offsite datacenter.

With Vembu BDR Suite, you can easily recover an entire VMware VM and Hyper-V VM from the backup using the Live Recovery feature.

Performing Full VM Restore for VMware VM

You can permanently restore the backed-up VMware VM to the same or different ESXi host/vCenter Server using Live Recovery to ESXi Server

Vembu BDR Suite utilizes VMware data transport modes such as HotAdd mode, Direct SAN mode, or Network mode for restoring the VMware VM data.

The process includes three simple steps

  • Choose the restore version
  • Select the VM to be restored
  • Enter Target server details and customize hardware configurations if required.

How it Works

  • Once you trigger the restore progress, Vembu BDR backup server checks the availability of the specified target ESXi server/vCenter Server and datastore.
  • Vembu BDR backup server creates a folder in the target data store. The folder will be named according to the specified VMName you provide during the restore configuration.
  • The VMX file of the source VMs are copied from the sgstorage and a few modifications are made in the VMX file -ctkEnabled, VM uuid, etc. Then, the modified file is uploaded to the folder that is created in the target data store.
  • The target VM will be registered in the target host and the disks are written to the new disk.
