Hello everybody, i'm new here and i need help about Acronis Cyber Cloud.

I start using it some times ago on my server, that runs on an HP machine with windows server 2012. It backup everything on a network drive that is located into my qnap.

Now recently my server died, so i need to restore my backup into a new vm that is hosted on my Dell Server with vmware esxi.

Now my question is: What's the easiest way to restore it? Because i tried with the boot media ISO on a new vm, but i cant "see" the backup file (.tibx) in any way.

Maybe somebody have some suggestion? Thanks

 

 

sorry for my bad english, i'm italian

Hello aaaa bbbbb,

Welcome to Acronis forums!

The easiest way is to restore an existing backup of your server as a virtual machine. You should open the console,  navigate to Backup storage ->  Locations and select the required backup. Then you click on Recovery -> Entire machine, enter credentials for the backup location where that backup is stored, Recover to -> Virtual machine. You will be able to select an existing VM or create a new VM at this step.

Please refer to this page in the documentation for more details: https://www.acronis.com/en-us/support/documentation/AcronisCyberProtect_15/#physical-machine-to-virtual.html
