Step 7. Configure Network Settings
[This step applies only if you have selected the Restore to a new location, or with different settings option at the Restore Mode step of the wizard]
At the Network step of the wizard, do the following for each VM instance added to the restore session:
- Select a VM instance and click Customize.
- In the VPC window:
- From the VPC and Subnet drop-down lists, select a VPC network and a subnet to which the restored VM instance will be connected.
For a VPC network and a subnet to be displayed in the lists of available networks, they must be created for the region specified at step 4 in Google Cloud as described in Google Cloud documentation.
- From the Network tag drop-down list, select Included if you want the restored VM instance to be assigned the same network tags as the source VM instance.
- From the Static IP address drop-down list, select Included if you want the restored VM instance to be assigned the static external IP address that was reserved for the source VM instance.
A static external IP address can be assigned to a restored VM instance only if this IP address has been reserved for the source VM instance. To learn how to reserve static external IP addresses for VM instances, see Google Cloud documentation.
