Virtual disaster recovery to VMware ESXi

The virtual disaster recovery feature lets you create a virtual machine on a remote vSphere/ESXi server and recover your system there. You can launch the virtual machine using vSphere Client or vSphere Web Client.


Before you initiate virtual disaster recovery to VMware ESXi, make sure both of the systems involved are supported and properly configured.

  • Source system – the system that has been backed up with the Backup Manager and is now going to be recovered.
  • Host system – the system that the recovery software is installed on. It can coincide with the source system.
