Selecting virtual machines for instant recovery
Perform the search operation on this screen to get a list of virtual machines that have IR-compatible backup images.
The first screen of the Instant Recovery Wizard displays 0 Virtual Machines Added. You must start the wizard operations by searching for and adding the virtual machines.
Table: Fields in the Virtual Machine Selection screen
Shows the vCenter server where the plug-in is installed.
Use the drop-down list to select the vCenter server where the VM resided when it was backed up.
If the plug-in is not authorized to restore VMs, this field is empty.
NetBackup Master Server
Use the drop-down list to select the master server that made the backup.
In certain cases, the master server may not appear in the drop-down list:
This drop-down only lists the master servers that are registered with the vCenter server selected in the vCenter drop-down. If the master server is not listed after adding it again, make sure that it is not listed in the top error message. Contact the NetBackup administrator to register the vCenter to the NetBackup master server.
Type display name, UUID, DNS, host name
For the virtual machine to restore, enter the full or partial text of the following: VM display name, instance ID, DNS name, or host name. Then click.
Enter an asterisk * to search the complete list.
This field is case-sensitive.
Once the vCenter server and the NetBackup master server are selected (after you select the virtual machines), the pairing of the two servers is locked. If a server selection is changed, the earlier operations do not remain valid. You can reset the search parameters at any time.
The results of the search appear in this list. Select the virtual machines and add them to restore and then click.
Selecting the NetBackup master server and vCenter server is mandatory. Select multiple virtual machines with Ctrl+Click or select a range of virtual machines with Shift+Click.
