4.2. Recovering Virtual Machines

To complete migration, virtual machines need to be recovered from their backups to the desired location.

One prerequisite is that a virtual machine must be stopped during recovery. By default, the software stops the machine without a prompt. When the recovery is completed, you have to start the machine manually. You can change the default behavior by using the VM power management recovery option (Recovery options > VM power management).

To recover a VM to a desired location:

  1. Do one of the following:

    • Select a backed-up machine, click Recovery, and then select a recovery point.

    • Select a recovery point on the Backup storage tab.

  2. Click Recover > Entire machine.


    By default, the software automatically selects the original machine as the target machine.


    To recover to another virtual machine, click Target machine, and then do the following:

    1. Select the hypervisor Virtuozzo Hybrid Infrastructure.

    2. Select whether to recover to a new or existing machine.

    3. Select the storage, domain, project and specify the new machine name, or select an existing target machine.

    4. Click OK.

  3. Set up the additional recovery options if needed.

  4. Click Start recovery.

  5. When recovering to an existing virtual machine, confirm that you want to overwrite the disks.

The recovery progress is shown on the Activities tab.


After a successful migration, you will see your VM in Virtuozzo Hybrid Infrastructure.
