A physical Linux file server needs to be migrated to VMware ESXi. The server has several volumes: /dev/sda (60GB), /dev/sdb (1TB) and /dev/sdc (4TB). What is the quickest option to migrate the server?
from https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/backup/agents/integration_instant_restore_vsphere.html?ver=120 "Restore to vSphere VM The procedure of Instant Recovery for a Veeam Agent computer practically does not differ from the same procedure for a VM. The main difference from Instant Recovery is that you do not need to select the recovery mode, because Veeam Agent computers are always restored to a new location."
A daily backup job for seven Hyper-V VMs has been configured at the main site, keeping 14 days’ worth of backup files. They want to get a copy of the VM backups to a repository at the disaster recovery site. They want to keep six months’ worth of backup files at the disaster recovery site. They also need to be able to restore the VMs to any given day within two months and any given week within six months. How should a backup copy job be configured to meet these requirements?
According to the Veeam Backup & Replication user guide1, you can use a long-term retention policy (GFS) to keep backup files for longer periods of time. GFS stands for grandfather-father-son and refers to a backup rotation scheme that allows you to create weekly, monthly, quarterly and yearly restore points12.
Therefore, if you want to be able to restore the VMs to any given day within two months and any given week within six months, you should use a GFS policy with 62 days of retention and 26 weekly GFS restore points. The simplest configuration would be an immediate copy (mirroring) mode with these settings (option B).
An administrator has decided to set up a VM backup job covering their Microsoft SOL servers. What feature must be enabled to ensure quiescence of the SQL databases during the backup?

According to the Veeam Backup & Replication best practice guide1, a new copy job mode was added called immediate copy. This mode immediately starts the backup copy job as soon as restore points appear in the repository. It also provides the ability to copy SQL and Oracle log backups which is not possible with traditional periodic backup copy12.
Therefore, if you want to create a secondary copy of all the backups including transaction logs, you should use an immediate copy backup copy job. The simplest configuration would be a single immediate copy backup copy job for all workloads (option B)
A Windows VM running on Microsoft Hyper-V is protected using the file indexing option. The guest interaction proxy is offline. Which of the following Veeam servers will be used to deploy the runtime during the backup process?
According to the Veeam Software Help Center1, Veeam Backup & Replication deploys runtime components on a VM guest OS to perform file indexing. These components can be either non-persistent or persistent depending on whether you have enabled application-aware processing for the VM.
If you have enabled application-aware processing for the VM, Veeam Backup & Replication uses a persistent agent component that is installed on the VM guest OS during backup job session and remains on the VM after that. In this case, if the guest interaction proxy is offline, Veeam Backup & Replication will use another available guest interaction proxy or fail over to the backup server.
If you have not enabled application-aware processing for the VM, Veeam Backup & Replication uses a non-persistent runtime component that is deployed on the fly and removed after indexing is complete. In this case, if the guest interaction proxy is offline, Veeam Backup & Replication will use another available guest interaction proxy or fail over to the backup server.

A director in a business needs a folder of traffic photos restored from a Linux server. This machine sits on a VM backed up by Veeam Backup & Replication. The director wants the files restored to their original location and does not want to lose the original files. What functionality will be used to restore the folder using the Veeam Guest OS restoration wizard?
According to the Veeam Backup & Replication user guide1, you can use the Guest File Restore wizard to restore files and folders from VM guest OSes that run Linux or other non-Windows OSes2. The wizard allows you to choose how to handle situations when restored files already exist on the target location3.
Therefore, if you want to restore the folder of traffic photos to their original location and do not want to lose the original files, you should use the Keep function. This function will preserve original files on disk and will not overwrite them with restored files

An infrastructure with 50 VMs has a power outage. After the VMware cluster has booted up again, 10 large VMs are orphaned. However, all VM disk files are still on the datastores. What Is the quickest way to bring back those VMs with the least possible data loss?
By performing a restore of only the VM configuration files, you can quickly recreate the VM in VMware vSphere using the existing disk files on the datastore. This method avoids the need to transfer or copy large VM disk files, resulting in a faster restoration process. Note that this method assumes that the VM disk files are still intact on the datastore. If any of the VM disk files are missing or corrupted, you may need to consider alternative restoration methods or perform a full restore from the Veeam backup files.
