During a restore of a vApp or vApp template into vCloud Director 8.0, NetBackup 7.7, 7.7.1, and 7.7.2 may fail to detect that a vApp was deleted successfully during the restore.
During restores into vCloud Director 8.0, NetBackup 7.7, 7.7.1, and 7.7.2 fails to completely restore vApp and vApp VM configuration settings.
SolutionThese issues are fixed beginning in the NetBackup 7.7.3 release. To restore into vCloud 8.0, upgrade to NetBackup 7.7.3 (or later) when it is available.
For restores using NetBackup 7.7, 7.7.1, and 7.7.2, Veritas recommends that you restore to vSphere, then import the VM into vCloud:
- In the Backup, Archive, and Restore interface, on the Recovery Destinations dialog box, select Alternate location in vSphere, then restore the VM.
- In vCloud, go to your Organization > My Cloud > vApps and then choose the “Import from vSphere” icon in the tool bar.
