Recover snapshot option only limited to Clone

Nutanix 5.11.2

Ultimate Licence

VMware vSphere 5.5

 

According to the Nutanix Knowledge base Restore Snapshot (2 options) , I shoud get the option to overide the existing vm when recovering a VM via a Snapshot.

 

However I only see the option to restore to a clone (see attached).

 

Can anyone advise?

Re: Recover snapshot option only limited to Clone

Hi @Icebun,

 

This functionality was removed in AOS 5.1 because the right thing to do is to create new copies of VMs and manually get rid of older ones.We have some scenarios in which customers tried to perform an in-place restore and it fails.

On top of that, We have some scenarios in which customers tried to perform an in-place restore and it fails.

 

But on the basis of customers request, this feature for restoring will come back from AOS 5.1.2

 

Feel free to let me know if you have any queries.

 

Thank you

 

Best Regards,
Karan
