NetVault Plug-in for Hyper-V 10.5 - User Guide

Setting image-level restore options

On the Create Selection Set page, click Edit Plugin Options, and configure the following parameters:
To restore the entire VM and establish a new version of that VM in Hyper‑V® Manager, select Recover entire VM to host and/or cluster.
If you do not want to remove the restored files under the Working Directory after a successful recovery, clear the Delete restored VM copy from working directory after recovery option. This option is selected by default.
To restore the VM disk and configuration files to the Working Directory, select Restore VM disks and configuration files to working directory.

Finalizing and submitting an image-level restore job

Click Ok to save the settings, and then click Next.
In Job Name, specify a name for the job if you do not want to use the default setting.
In the Target Client list, select the machine on which you want to restore the data.
TIP: You can also click Choose, and then locate and select the applicable client in the Choose the Target Client dialog box.
Use the Schedule, Source Options, and Advanced Options lists to configure any additional required options.
Click Save or Save & Submit, whichever is applicable.
You can monitor progress on the Job Status page and view the logs on the View Logs page. For more information, see the Dell NetVault Backup Administrator’s Guide.

Performing file-level recovery

If you select the Enable indexing for File Level Recovery option during backups generated using version 10.5 of the plug-in, you can restore individual files and directories from an image-level backup. The process includes the steps outlined in the following sections:

Selecting data for a file-level restore

On the Create Restore Job — Choose Saveset page, select Plug‑in for Hyper‑V from the Plugin Type list.
When you select a saveset, the following details are displayed in the Saveset Information area: Job ID, Job Title, server name, client name, plug-in name, saveset date and time, retirement setting, Archive or not, and saveset size.
IMPORTANT: If your restore job includes a Linux® VM; the Enable indexing for File Level Recovery option was selected during backup; the VM contains two files in the same directory that use the same name, differentiated only by capitalization; and you must restore both files, create and run two restore jobs. In one job, include all applicable files and one of the files with the same name. In the other job, include only the other file that uses the same name, and specify a different location for the restore. Because Windows is not case-sensitive, it does not recognize the distinction between the two files; this workaround prevents the restore from completing with warnings and ensures that both versions of the file are recovered.
Click Next.
On the Create Selection Set page, expand the Volumes node to display the indexed partitions, directories, and files contained within, and then select one or more indexed items for the restore.
IMPORTANT: Select only the applicable folders or files, or both, located under the Volumes node. Do not select the VM node itself.

not use the Rename option in the Actions list. Although the option is displayed, the plug-in ignores the Rename field and the restore completes with warnings.
