Setting virtual machine options for instant recovery
Use this screen to set the post-recovery options for the selected virtual machines.
Table: Fields in the Virtual Machine Options screen
A list of all the selected VMs is displayed. A conflict of display name is highlighted in case the display name that has been provided already exists on the destination. Look for the following symbol.
For more information about the hosts with name conflicts, clickin the message bar at the top of the screen. Information about all conflicts appears in the resulting pop-up box.
In case of duplicate display name, change the highlighted display name to proceed.

You can select individual VMs to retain the networks after the recovery is complete and to power on the VM.
Powers on all the selected VMs after the recovery.
You can select individual VMs to be powered on.
Retain tag associations
When this option is selected, NetBackup restores tag associations when it restores the virtual machine. If NetBackup cannot restore one or more of the tag associations, the restore exits with NetBackup status code 1.
If this option is not selected, NetBackup does not restore any tag associations from the backup.
Retain hardware version
When this option is selected, NetBackup restores the virtual machine with its original hardware version (such as 4). It retains the original version even if the target ESXi server by default uses a later hardware version (such as 7 or 8).
If this option is not selected, the restored virtual machine is converted to the default hardware version that the ESXi server uses.
Add common suffix to all display names
You can add a common suffix to the display names of all the selected VMs. For example, if you add VM_Storage_1 and click , the display name changes to Network1_VM_Storage_1.to the display name
