Challenge

This article explains how to recover Veeam Backup for GCP data in case the backup appliance gets corrupted and requires the data to be moved to a new instance (as the data contains important information about restore points, repositories, policies and so on).

Additionally, you can use the procedure below to migrate Veeam Backup for GCP instance between regions.

Solution A (Original deployment still exists)

  1. Deploy a new Veeam Backup for GCP instance from Google Cloud Marketplace — in the same region and zone as the old instance.
  2. Stop the old instance.
  3. Go to the VM instance details of your old Veeam Backup for GCP deployment and click the Edit button. Save the service account used to run the old instance.

    Then, detach the additional disk named OLD_DEPLOYMENT_NAME-data-disk.

  4. Go to the VM instance details of your new Veeam Backup for GCP deployment and click the Edit button. Select the saved account from the Service Account drop-down list.

    Then, detach the additional disk named NEW_DEPLOYMENT_NAME-data-disk.

  5. Attach the additional disk named OLD_DEPLOYMENT_NAME-data-disk to the new Veeam Backup for GCP instance, and save the changes.
  6. Start the new instance.

Solution B (Original deployment does not exist anymore or is corrupted)

  1. Deploy a new Veeam Backup for GCP instance from Google Cloud Marketplace.
  2. In the Google Cloud Console, select the project where Veeam Backup for GCP was originally deployed.

    Then, navigate to Disks and create a new SSD persistent disk using the source snapshot named OLD_DEPLOYMENT_NAME-data-region-timestamp in the region where the new Veeam Backup for GCP instance is deployed. Set the size of the disk to 20 GB or more.

  3. Go to the VM instance details of your new Veeam Backup for GCP deployment and click the Edit button. Then, detach the additional disk named NEW_DEPLOYMENT_NAME-data-disk.
  4. Attach the SSD persistent disk created at step 2 to the new Veeam Backup for GCP instance, and save the changes.
  5. Start the new instance.
