Hi
We had a bit of a fibre channel failure yesterday which meant I had to remove various virtual servers from my VSphere 5.0.1 inventory and re-add them to another esxihost.

Veeam now fails to find them and as such the backup fails.

Is there a way I can tell Veeam to re-associate to the existing backup rather than start from scratch.

Regards
Jo

the UUID of the VM has changed, and as far as Veeam is concerned this is a new VM.

Start from scratch, and get full backups.

Working with VeeamSupport I have found that there is a way to do this in Veeam 6.11.

In the Job Properties, 1st page,  there is a low connection bandwidth (enable replica seeding) option, check this.

You will also need to remove and re-add the Virtual Machines to replicate, keep nexting til you get to the seeding dialogue, we selected replica mapping, edit and then found the original replica location.

Thats it
