Please Note: This is not an “official” download and as such is not a Symantec supported tool. Use at your own risk.

I would like to share and make available a home made solution developed by Symantec Consulting Brazil, a graphical user interface to management VMware instant recovery process.

Its replaces the need to use the command-line nbrestorevm in most restore cases.

We partition in three levels, explained follow:

 

1st Part

  • Machine Name: name of source Virtual Machine that has been backed-up
  • Data Store: data store destination
  • Restore Host: Same as -vmproxy flag, by default, gets the local hostname. Can be changed to another hostname.
  • Load More Options: To open a browse and select a file that contains directives for restore to a different location., eg.: change hostname, change vcenter
  • Remove Network Interface: self explains ( corresponds to -vmsn flag)
  • Power On Machine: self explains ( corresponds to -vmpo flag)

NOTE: only the last image backup will be restore

2nd Part

  • List VM: To list details about the activated virtual machine (corresponds to -ir_listvm flag)
  • Clear: To clear “List VM” output

3rd Part

  • VM ID: field to insert VM ID obtained by “List VM” output
  • Complete: To complete the VM instant recovery job after the data is migrated ( corresponds to -ir_done flag)
  • Deactivate: To deactivate or delete the virtual machine ( corresponds to -ir_deactivate)
