How to recover VM to “Its Original Location” or an “Alternate Location” in MS-DPM 2010

Currently we’re using MS-DPM 2010 server to back up all our Virtual Machines (VM’s). Critical to our business VM’s are on Hyper-V R2 Cluster and VM’s not so critical are “‘sitting” on non-cluster Hyper-V R2 server. DPM 2010 agents have need installed on Hyper-V hosts only. All scheduled backups for VM’s working fine so far.

I have been asked to show proof of successful disaster recovery (DR) in our virtual environment. Before I run my DR show in front of my boss I have to run it for myself first.

Here is my problem. I cannot figure out on how to recover VM to “Its Original Location” or an “Alternate Location”. During my try I’m presented with warning that recovery element is vhd and not the virtual machine?! The only options I have here is to copy vhd file onto network location?! Is that meaning that I have to copy backup vhd file to Hyper-V host and manually import it somehow?! Please tell me that I’m wrong here and I just missed some recovery steps on the way.

Thanks in advance.

hi olevo,

how are the VMs being backed up "backup using saved state" or "backup using child partition"

please confirm if you are able to get the option "All Protected Hyper-V Data" in the recovery screen.

check this article.
