automatic PRA - Backup / restauration Script


New Member

I would like to create a recovery plan like Veeam Backup knows how to do
Back up the VM in the evening and restore it alongside with another name

For example :

  • VM1 (VM Production)
  • VM1_PRA_D1 (clone of the VM the day before)

So as with Veeam in the event of a major failure, you can immediately launch the VM without even going through the restor

do you think this is scriptable?
yes that is possible, you can write a script that just clones and renames the VM every day with # qm clone.
