Restore to AWS

Step 1 : Connect

link

Select [Amazon AWS] and enter the credential information. Click [Next].

Step 2 : Recovery Setting

link

Click […] and specify the instance for the restore target. Please make sure that the instance is not running.

Only instances in the connected region are supported and can be selected for the restore target.

When restoring a backup of a computer on Amazon EC2, it is recommended to specify the backup source virtual machine as the restore target instance.

When restoring a backup of a computer on cloud environment other than Amazon EC2, please make sure that the instance of the restore target is prepared in advance.

  • Start the instance after the restore process
    When restored, the instance is booted up.

  • Even when virtualization fails, keep the instance
    If virtualization fails when restored, the instance is deleted. Enabling this option keeps the instance instead of deleting should virtualization fail.

Enabling [Start Instance after restore] boots up the instance after restore process completes.

Disk preservation settings

Configure the option settings for the restored volume.

Option Contents
Detach Current disks Detach the volume connected to the instance and connect the restored volume to the instance.
The detached volume remains instead of being deleted.
Delete Current disks Detach / delete the volume connected to the instance and connect the restored volume to the instance.
Keep Current disks The volume connecting to the instance is not detached but additionally attached to the restored volume.
Replace (Detach) previously restored disks Detach the restored volume connecting to the instance and connect the restored volume to the instance.
The detached volume remains instead of being deleted.
The volumes that are not restored by using this product are not detached from the instance.
Replace (Delete) previously restored disks Detach / delete the restored volume connecting to the instance and connect the restored volume to the instance.
The volumes restored without using this product are not detached from the instance.

Step 3 : Recovery Point

Please specify the folder on which the restore source backup file is located.

You are allowed to use the backup file accessible from the appliance booted in Step 2.

Before using backup files located in Wasabi, please select Amazon S3, go to [Enter Provider] - [Add New Target] and select Wasabi.

After the computer and recovery point are selected, the window is displayed for target disk setting.

Click […] and specify the instance for the restore target. Please make sure that the instance is not running.

Only instances in the same region are supported and can be selected for the restore target.

When restoring a backup of a computer on Azure, it is recommended to specify the backup source virtual machine as the restore target instance. When specifying a virtual machine from a different publisher as restore target instance, the restored virtual machine may not be powered on according to Azure’s requirements.

When restoring a backup of a computer on a cloud environment other than Azure, please make sure that the instance of the Microsoft-publisher restore target is prepared in advance.

  • Start instance after restore process
    When restored, the instance is booted up.

  • If virtualization fails, keep the instance
    If virtualization fails when restored, the instance is deleted. Enabling this option keeps the instance instead of deleting even when virtualization fails.
