The objective of single VM Restore is to full restore one of the VMs which are previously backed up.

Most restore tools present a menu of backed up repositories to the admin and permit the ability to restore. The repositories are sorted by backup-name, backup-date, and time.


  1. During restore, ensure that you connect to the VC, which controls the VMware Telco Cloud Operations. And, your tool can connect to all the VMware Telco Cloud Operations VMs.
  2. For an in-place restore, make sure that the production VM being restored is shut down. The Veeam tool, detects the VM which are being restored in-place was shut down or not, and it even shut that down before doing the restore.
    Note: Based on the IT policy of the organization, you can restore on a staging VMware Telco Cloud Operations setup. You can test first and then switch the production operations to use the staged and tested setup. You can also restore directly (that is a in-place or in the production environment).
    Example of an in-place all-VM restore, using Veeam:
    1. Ensure that instantaneous events are enabled or simulated from the smarts domain to VMware Telco Cloud Operations during the process of restore.
    2. Verify that, statistics are displayed on the UI dashboard.
    3. Select the VM in the restore UI of Veeam tool.
      Note: Restore requires a Kafka VM-power-off. And, shut down Kafka-VM before starting restore.
    4. Start the single VM Restore.

      Progress and successful completion are monitored on the Veeam dashboard.

    5. After successful restore, do the following:
      1. Start the KafkaWorkerVM.
      2. Join the cluster and KafkaWorkerVM.
        Note: Ensure all the VMs and simulation are running.
      3. Connect to the UI.
      4. Notifications summary must match, as before.
      5. Ensure that you have your old data in the UI, which was created and stored in elastic before taking a backup, that means the elastic search also restored properly.
