Fields

Description

Restore Destination

Lists the details on the restore destination.

VM identifier

The display name or other identifier of the virtual machine to restore.

Hyper-V server

The Hyper-V server on which to restore the virtual machine. The default is the original server.

To restore the virtual machine to an alternate Hyper-V server, click Change and use the pull-down to select a different server.

The pull-down lists the Hyper-V servers that the SCVMM server manages.

Restore Location

The directory in which to restore the virtual machine. The default is the original directory.

To select an alternate restore directory, click Browse and select the directory:

Note:

To create a new directory for the restore location, click the Explore directory link at the bottom of the Select Destination Folder dialog. Administrator privileges may be required.

Note:

When browsing for directories, the Microsoft RemoteFileBrowserDialog widget may display a dynamic volume with its GUID instead of with a volume letter. You can still select a destination folder under the GUID-identified volume. See the following Microsoft article on this issue:

Using Dynamic Disks to host virtual machine files in Virtual Machine Manager

Reset to Original

Resets the restore location to the original Hyper-V server and original directory.

Restore Options

Lists the restore options.

Overwrite existing virtual machine

If a virtual machine with the same display name exists at the destination, that virtual machine must be deleted before the restore begins. Otherwise, the restore fails.

Select this option to delete the existing virtual machine.

Next

When you are done, click Next to go to the next screen of the wizard.
