Restore Options (Virtual Server)

Use this dialog box to select a type of restore. You can select one of the following restore type while restoring data from a virtual machine in a vCenter:

Full Virtual Machine

This restore type is selected by default. The entire virtual machine will be restored along with its configuration files and disks.

If at least one Hyper-V node is configured on the CommServe host, a Restore as option is displayed. The default selection is VMware; but you can select Microsoft Hyper-V to use the last successful backup of a full VMware virtual machine to create a Microsoft Hyper-V virtual machine. This option enables you to duplicate a VMware virtual machine for the Hyper-V environment, or to migrate a virtual machine from VMware to Hyper-V.

Virtual Machine Files

Select this option to restore disks (VMDK files) from a virtual machine.

Attach Disk to Existing VM

Select this option to attach one or more disks of a backed up virtual machine to an existing virtual machine.

Guest Files or Folders

Select this option to restore files or folders from a virtual machine. You can restore files or folders only if you have selected the Enable Granular Recovery check box while performing the backup of the virtual machine.
