Register VM

In this article

    This step registers the selected VM on a host from a storage recovery location, changes the IP address configuration of the VM, applies the mapping specified for the location, and then powers the VM on.

    Note

    Before powering a recovered VM on, VAO removes all unused swap (.VSWP) files from the default VM directory. If a custom location is used to store swap files, VAO will not be able to remove them.

    You can override the following parameters for the Register VM step:
