Recover an RHV virtual machine
You can recover a VM to the original location where it existed when it was backed up or to a different location.
To recover a VM
- On the left, click RHV.
- Locate and click on the VM.
- Click the Recovery points tab. In the calendar view on the left, click the date on which the backup occurred.
The available images are listed in rows with the backup timestamp for each image. The date that is highlighted by green dot has a recovery point for that VM.
- On the image you want to recover, click Recover.
- To recover to the original location, do not modify the Recovery targets.
To recover to a different location:
Modify the Display name. Select the RHV manager and the RHV cluster where you want to recover the VM.
If you are unable to change the RHV cluster, See Error run into while restoring RHV virtual machines.
- Click Add to add a storage domain and select the appropriate storage domain.
Select different storage domain for the virtual disks or select Use the same storage domain for all virtual disks to use the same storage domain for all the virtual disks. Click Next.
- Review or change the following options:
Overwrite existing virtual machine
If a VM with the same UUID or same name exists at the destination and if this option is selected then that VM is deleted.
If a VM with the same UUID or same name exists at the destination and if this option is not selected then the restore fails and an error is displayed.
Power on after recovery
Automatically turns on the VM when the recovery is complete.
A backup host that you can use during recovery. By default, the recovery host is the backup host that was used during a backup.
Retain original network configuration
The restored VM automatically connects to the original network using the retained NICs.
Do not enable this option if:
The network connections on the destination virtual machine have changed since the backup was made.
The original virtual machine still exists and a duplicate VM may cause conflicts.
Create a new VM UUID
Restores the VM with a new UUID instead of the original UUID.
Remove tag associations
Removes the tags which were associated with the VM at the time of backup.
Format of restored virtual disks:
Restores the VM's virtual disks with their original provisioning.
Configures the restored virtual disks in the thick format. The virtual disk space is pre-allocated when the disk is created.
Configures the restored virtual disks in the thin format. Restores only the populated blocks and the new blocks are allocated as required.
- Click Next to run the Pre-recovery check.
The Pre-recovery check validates all the recovery parameters and displays errors, if any. You can fix the errors before starting the recovery.
- Click Start recovery.
If you refresh the display, the Restore activity tab shows the job progress.
