NetVault Plug-in for Hyper-V 11.2 - User Guide

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.

Setting file-level restore options

On the Create Selection Set page, click Edit Plugin Options, and select the Restore files from inside VM guest OS to specified location option.
In the Target directory box, enter the full path to where you want the files restored, and verify that the path exists before continuing.
To save the settings, click Ok, and then click Next.

Finalizing and submitting a file-level restore job

The final steps include setting additional options on the Schedule, Source Options, and Advanced Options pages, submitting the job, and monitoring the progress through the Job Status and View Logs pages. These pages and options are common to all NetVault Backup Plug-ins. For more information, see the Quest NetVault Backup Administrator’s Guide.

To save the settings, click Ok, and then click Next.
In Job Name, specify a name for the job if you do not want to use the default setting.
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 Quest NetVault Backup Administrator’s Guide.
