Notes on restoring Hyper-V virtual machines with the Recovery Wizard
Use the NetBackupin the SCVMM console to restore a virtual machine from its NetBackup image.
Note the following about the NetBackup Add-in Recovery Wizard:
The NetBackup Recovery Wizard is for restore of an entire virtual machine, not for restore of individual files. To restore individual files from the virtual machine backup, use the NetBackup Backup, Archive, and Restore interface.
See the topics on restoring individual files in the NetBackup for Hyper-V Administrator's Guide.
The NetBackup Recovery Wizard does not support restore to a staging location. To restore the virtual machine to a staging location, use the NetBackup Backup, Archive, and Restore interface.
Changes that are made through Hyper-V Manager on individual Hyper-V hosts or clusters can take up to 24 hours to be reflected in the SCVMM Console. Until then, the NetBackup add-in Recovery Wizard may not have the latest virtual machine configuration state. In that case, the Recovery Wizard's pre-recovery checks related to the VM's location may not be based on the most recent data in SCVMM. You may have to make a different selection in the Recovery Wizard.
The NetBackup Administration Console includes the following enhancements for restoring a VM:
A new VM GUID is generated by default when you restore a VM to an alternate location.
A new VM display name can be specified when you restore a VM.
The NetBackup Recovery Wizard does not support these restore enhancements. Use the NetBackup Administration Console or the nbrestorevm command to generate a new GUID or set a new display name when restoring a VM.
