Step 5. Select Target Datastore

The Datastore step of the wizard is only available if you have chosen to perform advanced failback.

When restoring a VM from a replica, you can place an entire VM to a particular location or choose to store configuration files and disk files of a restored VM in different locations.

To specify a destination location:

  1. Select one or more VMs in the list and click Path.
  2. If configuration and disk files of a VM should be placed to different locations, expand the VM in the list, select the necessary file type, click Path and point to the necessary folder. To create a dedicated folder for storing files of the restored VM, use the Make New folder button at the bottom of the window.

You can choose a Microsoft SMB3 shared folder as a destination for the VM.

  1. Select the VM in the list and click Path at the bottom of the window.
  2. Type a path to the Microsoft SMB3 shared folder in the search field at the bottom of the Select Folder window. The path must be specified in the UNC format, for example: \\\Share01.

The host or cluster where you register the VM must have access to the Microsoft SMB3 shared folder. If you are using SCVMM 2012 or later, the server hosting the Microsoft SMB3 share must be registered in SCVMM as a storage device. For more information, see Microsoft Docs.
