Retain tag associations
When this option is selected, NetBackup restores tag associations when it restores the virtual machine. If NetBackup cannot restore one or more of the tag associations, the restore exits with NetBackup status code 1.
If this option is not selected, NetBackup does not restore any tag associations from the backup.
Retain original hardware version
When this option is selected, NetBackup restores the virtual machine with its original hardware version (such as 4). It retains the original version even if the target ESXi server by default uses a later hardware version (such as 7 or 8).
If this option is not selected, the restored virtual machine is converted to the default hardware version that the ESXi server uses.

You can add a common suffix to the display names of all the selected VMs. For example, if you add VM_Storage_1 and click , the display name changes to Network1_VM_Storage_1.to the display name
