I am running an environment with Data Protector 6.20 backing up a vmware vsphere 4.0.0 environment utilizing the vStorage Image backup method to back up my VMs.
I need to restore a VM as a temporary to pull out some files while leaving the original intact.
The documentation provided by support (http://bizsupport1.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c01631241/c01631241.pdf
) is not for version 6.2. (The restore section begins on pg 77).
In the Restore context (within HP DP) on the Options tab, there is a drop down for "Existing virtual machine handling" with 3 options:
1. Delete before restore
2. Skip restore
3. Delete after restore
Will one of these options allow me to restore a vm as a temporary VM to remove later while leaving the original intact?
