User Guide for VMware vSphere

Step 8. Select Target Folder and Change VM Settings

The Folder step of the wizard is available if you have chosen to change the location and settings for the restored VM.

At this step of the wizard, you can do the following:

Specifying Destination VM Folder

To specify a destination VM folder:

  1. Select a VM in the list and click Folder.
  2. Choose a folder to which the VM will be placed. To facilitate selection, use the search field at the bottom of the window: enter a folder name or a part of it and click the Start search button on the right or press [ENTER].

By default, Veeam Backup & Replication restores a VM with its original name. However, you can change the name of the restored VM. For example, if you restore a VM to its original location, you may need to change its name to avoid potential problems.

Changing VM Settings

To change the VM name:

  1. Select a VM in the list and click Name.
  2. In the Change Name section, enter a new name explicitly or specify a change name rule by adding a prefix and/or suffix to the original VM name.

You can also change the VM name directly in the list:

  1. Select a VM in the list and click the New Name field.
  2. Enter the name to be assigned to the restored VM.

Select the Restore VM tags check box if you want to restore tags that were assigned to the original VM, and assign them to the restored VM. Veeam Backup & Replication will restore the VM with original tags if the following conditions are met:

Step 8. Select Target Folder and Change VM Settings Note:

Mind the following:

  • If you restore a VM to a standalone ESX(i) host that is not managed by the vCenter Server, you cannot select a destination folder: this option will be disabled.
  • During entire VM restore, Veeam Backup & Replication preserves the UUID of the original VM.
