Restore a VM to multiple copies?

I need to restore a vm to multiple VM’s, and then change configurations to make these VM’s to different servers.

Any ways to restore a VM's image from backups to multple VM's? Thanks!

Re: Restore a VM to multiple copies?

Hello,

yes but you must restore them in individual restore jobs, launched one after another. There is no way to create all of them with one restore job.

Thanks!

 

I am wondering what is the technical difficulties to achieve that, in the same process to restore a vm to multiple copies?

There are use cases here if NetBackup can have this feature that would be greatly helpful.

Re: Restore a VM to multiple copies?

Hello,

this is NetBackup design - it cannot restore an object into multiple copies in one restore job, regardless if it is a VMware or not.

However when the backup image on disk, it can be read by multiple verify/restore jobs, so you can issue these restore jobs quickly one after another, and these multiple restores then run almost parallelly..

When the backup is on a tape, then restore jobs must wait one for another, and thus run sequentially.
