Step 3. Select Restore Mode

In this article

    This step is available only if you restore Nutanix AHV VMs.

    At the Restore Mode step of the wizard, specify how VMs will be restored:

    • Select Restore to the original location if you want to restore VMs with their initial settings and to their original location. If this option is selected, you will pass directly to the Reason step of the wizard.
    • Select Restore to a new location, or with different settings if you want to restore VMs to a different location and/or with different settings (such as VM location, network settings, format of restored virtual disks and so on). If this option is selected, the Instant Recovery to Nutanix AHV wizard will include additional steps for customizing VM settings.

    Important

    If you recover a VM with original settings, and the original VM still exists in the virtual infrastructure, the original VM will be removed.
