Restoring Virtual Machine Disk Files

You can restore virtual machine disk files for VMware or Hyper-V.

Procedure

  1. From the navigation pane, click Solutions > Virtualization > Hypervisors.

    The Hypervisors page appears.

  2. Click the name of the hypervisor that hosts the virtual machines.

    The hypervisor details page appears. The VM groups area displays summary information for any existing VM groups.

  3. In the VM groups area, click Restore for the VM group that contains the virtual machine.
  4. In the Select restore type page, select Virtual machine files to restore virtual machine configuration and disk files to the file system of the proxy.
  5. In the Restore page, expand the tree on the left and select the objects to be restored on the right. Select an item or click on an entry in the Name column to browse within an item. For hierarchical data such as files, folders, and disks, you can click an entry in the path listing above the right pane to return to a higher level of the hierarchy.

    In the top right corner of the page, a "Showing" message indicates what backup data is being displayed. You can click the down arrow beside this message and select any of the following options:

    • Show latest backups: Only display data for the most recent backups.
    • Show backups as of a specific date: Only display data up to the date you specify.
    • Show backups for a date range: Only display data within the data range you specify.
  6. Click Restore.
  7. In the Restore options dialog box, provide the requested information:
    1. To restore to a different hypervisor, select the hypervisor name from the Destination hypervisor list.

      By default, virtual machine disk files are restored to the original hypervisor.

    2. Optional: Use the Impersonate user option to provide credentials for another user account.

      By default, the Local System account on the destination client is used to perform the restore operation. The user must have permissions to create files in the specified location on the destination.

    3. For the Path box, type a full path or click Browse to select a destination folder.
    4. To delete an existing file and replace it with the restored file, select Overwrite if it already exists.
  8. Click Submit to run the restore job.
