Hi, I’m new on the Data protection feature. I’ve done the a test VM migration to another nutanix cluster. The thing is after the migration, the VM on the source will be destroyed. I’m planning to use the Data protection to migrate the VM from the source cluster to the target cluster. I would need to failback the VM to the source VM. Am I able to restore the VM on the source site?

So bsaically there are two things after a failover…you can do a failback using Protection Domain migrate option on the source site.
or Protection Domain activate option on the destination site
You can also bring up the VM from the latest snapshots on the destination site.
You can also create a clone instead of restoring from snapshot.
Here is some documentation related to DR and PD https://portal.nutanix.com/page/documents/details?targetId=Prism-Element-Data-Protection-Guide-v5_17:Prism-Element-Data-Protection-Guide-v5_17
Also here are some great videos from NuSchool on PD and DR :https://www.youtube.com/c/NutanixUniversity/search?query=PD
I hope I was able to answer your query.
