Restoring VMs into vCloud vApp

You can restore one or several VMs from vCD backups back to vCloud Director.

The vCloud Director VM can be restored to its original location — to a vApp in which the VM is already registered, or to a different location. You can restore a VM that already exists, for example, if the original VM is corrupted or you want to revert to an earlier state of the VM, or a VM that no longer exists, for example, if the VM was deleted by mistake. If you restore a VM that already exists, the original VM is overwritten with that from the vCD backup.

When restoring VMs to the vCloud Director hierarchy, make sure that you select the Restore into vCloud vApp option. If you select the Restore into vSphere infrastructure option, the VM will be restored at the level of the underlying vCenter Server. To get a fully functional VM managed by vCloud Director, you will need to manually import the restored VM to the vCloud Director hierarchy.

Before restoring a VM to the vCloud Director hierarchy, check prerequisites. Then use the vCloud Full VM Restore wizard to restore the necessary VM.

  1. Launch the Full vApp Restore wizard
  2. Select a VM to restore
  3. Select a restore point
  4. Select a restore mode
  5. Select the VM location
  6. Select a destination network
  7. Select a template to link
  8. Select a storage policy and datastores
  9. Specify secure restore settings
  10. Specify a restore reason
  11. Verify recovery settings
