SnapManager for Hyper-V

Restore from a backup after failback

  • Issue

    If you perform a failover and failback, you may not be able to restore VMs on your primary site from a backup created on the same primary site, before the failover.

  • Cause

    Snapshot copy verification uses volume GUIDs. GUIDs changes after disaster recovery.

  • Corrective Action

    You can disable the Verify Snapshots option through the PowerShell or the Restore wizard:

    • Uncheck the "Enable Snapshot Verification" option in the Restore Options page of the Restore wizard.

    • Using PowerShell, make sure that - DisableVerifySnapshot parameter is specified.
