The pre-recovery checks in the Recovery Wizard of the NetBackup Add-in for SCVMM return out-of-date information about the VM
This topic pertains to the NetBackup Add-in for System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM).
When you click Review Settings screen of the Recovery Wizard, the wizard runs pre-recovery checks to validate your selections and the recovery destination. However, if changes to the VM were recently made through Hyper-V Manager (not through SCVMM), the pre-recovery checks may encounter out-of-date information about the VM. 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 SCVMM. This delay is due to the Microsoft SCVMM refresh cycle, which the NetBackup add-in does not control.on the
For example: If the VM was recently deleted through the Hyper-V Manager, the deletion may not be reflected yet in SCVMM. In this case, the add-in's pre-recovery checks report that the VM still exists. The following message appears:
A virtual machine with the same identity exists on <host> and the overwrite option was not selected. Please review restore options and select overwrite to continue.
To recover the VM, go back to the wizard'sscreen and select , and rerun the recovery.
In an SCVMM environment, Microsoft recommends making VM configuration changes through SCVMM (not through the Hyper-V Manager on individual hosts or clusters). Changes that are made through the SCVMM Console are reflected immediately in SCVMM. The add-in's pre-recovery checks therefore reflect the current state of the VM.
