Restoring Entire VM

If a VM has failed, you can recover it from the backup with entire VM restore. You can restore one or more VMs at once, to the original location or new location.

The entire VM restore operation recovers an entire VM from the backup file and registers the VM on the target host. Full VM recovery takes more time than Instant VM Recovery as you have to extract the VM image from the backup to the production storage. However, you do not need to take any additional steps to finalize entire VM restore: entire VM restore actually recovers a failed VM on the production storage and provides full disk I/O performance.

Before you restore a VM from the backup, check prerequisites. Then use the Full VM Restore wizard to restore the necessary VM.

  1. Launch the Full VM Restore wizard
  2. Select VMs to restore
  3. Select a restore point
  4. Select a restore mode
  5. Select a target host
  6. Select a target resource pool
  7. Select a target datastore
  8. Select a target folder and change VM settings
  9. Specify network mapping
  10. Specify secure restore settings
  11. Specify staged restore settings
  12. Specify a restore reason
  13. Verify recovery settings

There is a misspelling right here:
