We are using Veeam to replicate our vms to our dr site and was wondering if I have an issue with a vm in my production environment, can I restore the vm from my dr site where the replication jobs go to and if so which option do I use to make this happen?
We are running Veeam 7.0

Why don't you Failover to the VM, at DR, and then Failback ?

otherwise you would have to transfer the replica VM from DR to Production.

Would that be go into restore and then select failover to replica and then once that is done then select the same vm and the restore and select failover to production?
