Restore VM

In this article

    This step restores the selected VM to the recovery location specified for the plan.

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

    Parameter

    Description

    Default Value

    Critical Step

    Defines whether the step is critical for VM recovery.  

    If you mark the step as Critical, its failure for a VM from a critical VM group will halt the plan.

    Yes

    Restored VM Name

    Name under which the VM will be restored and registered.

    Note: By default, the restored VM has the name of the source VM. If you want to restore the VM to the same datacenter where the source VM is registered and the source VM still resides there, it is recommended that you change the parameter value to avoid conflicts.

    %source_vm_name%

    Timeout

    Maximum amount of time (in minutes) for the step to execute.

    Note: The default parameter value is set to 0, which means that VAO will wait for the step to complete for as long as required. However, if you run the Halt action to halt the restore process, VAO will halt the plan immediately, despite the infinite timeout value.

    0

    Retries

    Number of retries that will be attempted if the step fails on the first try.

    2

    Test Action

    Defines whether the step will be executed during plan testing in a DataLab.
