Veeam snapshots as backup


I currently backup all of my vm’s using veeam backup and replication. I was wondering, is this a method supported by mailinabox? I.e. If I were to restore a VM completely from a snapshot in a disaster scenario, would it work?


Sure. The first thing you would have to do after spinning up the new VM would be to run sudo mailinabox from the command line so that the system could pick up the new IP address. And the necessary adjustments to DNS would need to be made of course.

General rule of thumb, backups are never valid until tested.

Also, avoid changing IP address allocations when possible. MiaB could be fine with the change, but what about other devices within your environment (e.g., hosts file configurations)?

Good luck!
