The Boot Verification section allows verifying DR image and VM backups by automatically booting the last successful backup on the Cloud Failover Appliance (CFA).
It is available for Windows backups only, and only on the primary CFAs.

In the CFA Management Console:
Go to the Settings tab, and then click Boot Verification in the Tools group.

Click Apply to save settings.
View boot verification results
Results of the verification are shown in the CFA Management Console › Clients › Summary. They include a boot detection screenshot and a boot status.
For Linux, only boot detection screenshot is available. Boot status can also be unavailable for some Windows localizations.
|Successful||Backup was successfully checked and booted by the boot verification service|
|Failed||Boot verification failed due to either: the time allotted to verification has expired (the backup could still be healthy and bootable); or other failures. Contact Support for assistance.|
|N/A||Boot verification service did not find what to verify due to either: the CFA was rebooted or the service was restarted; thus boot verification queue was cleared, and there is nothing to verify for now; or the boot verification service is turned off|
|Unknown||Boot verification service tried to verify an operating system other then Windows|
