Good afternoon everyone.

During the integration with Nutanix AHV, I faced the following case -

I need to perform the operation of restoring VM to the snapshot state, my questions are:

1. how can I do this with API v3?
2. may I restore the state of one VM with the snapshot from another one?


What are recommendations and best practices exist to do this with API v3?
 

Thanks.

Hi Peter,

The API you are looking for is in development process what means it is unsupported in case you want to make use of it. The URL path is 

/api/nutanix/v3/vm_recovery_points/{recovery_point_uuid}/restore

A body example would be:

{"vm_override_spec":{"name":"myVm_clone1"}}

If you are looking for an official supported way, then I suggest you use PE v2 APIs https://www.nutanix.dev/reference/prism_element/v2/api/vms/post-vms-uuid-restore-restorevm
