Search Virtual Machines for Restore dialog
Use this screen to search for virtual machines by name or other identifier, or to use other filter criteria.
Enter Display Name, Host Name, IP Address, UUID, DNS Name or vApp to search for:
Enter the name or number of the virtual machine to search for and click Search results dialog.. Any matching virtual machines appear in the
Click to create a rule-based search query. See Table: Advanced Search: filter parameters.
Table: Advanced Search: filter parameters
Available when you click the plus sign to add a rule to the search.
AND: Limits or restricts the scope of the search.
OR: Opens the search to an additional possibility, expanding the scope of the search.
Select a parameter on which to search.
You can type the first character of the parameter to select it.
Select an operator.
You can type the first character of the operator to select it.
The available operators depend on the parameter that was selected.
Enter a value for the parameter. The search looks for the virtual machines that match the value.
Choose a date and time.
Refine or expand the search (add another rule).
Remove the rule from the search.
Search by display name, host name, IP address, UUID, DNS name, or vApp.
Run the search. The matching virtual machines appear in the Search results dialog.
Note the following about the search behavior:
Although VMware allows up to 128 characters for an object name, the NetBackup database restricts searches to the first 126 characters only.
To search for a vSphere vApp by name without specifying its path: Use the search operatoror (do not use ). To use , you must specify the entire path of the vApp.
To search by IP address: If the virtual machine has two or more IP addresses (such as virtual addresses), useas the search operator instead of .
You must include a leading forward slash (/) when searching for a data center, VM folder, or resource pool. If you use theoperator, a leading slash is not required.
?are not supported for Greater, GreaterEqual, Less, and LessEqual operators. The
?characters are treated as literals, not wildcards.
For the rest of the operators,
*matches everything, and
?matches any single character.
Note: SQL has a limitation that wildcards
?(SQL equivalents are % and _) do not match null values. If a virtual machine does not have an IP address, the query "IPAddress Equal *" does not find the virtual machine.
