Before you perform VM restore, mind the following limitations:
- During restore, you cannot change the network settings of the VM. These parameters can be changed after the restore is complete via Prism Element or Prism Central.
- Restore from AOS 5.6 to AOS 5.1 fails with the following error due to compatibility issues in AHV 5.6.
Cannot construct Map key of type
com.nutanix.prism.dto.uhura.VmConfigDTO$VmFeature from String "VGA_CONSOLE"
- Parallel VMs/Disks restore is not supported (proxy appliance restores only 1 VM or disk at a time).
If a source VM has a set affinity and if during restore this host is not available on the cluster (or original VM was backed up from different cluster), you must set the affinity policy manually before starting the VM.
