Restoring Hyper-V virtual machines with DPM
Today many IT departments utilize virtualization and many have chosen Hyper-V as
their hypervisor. We covered how DPM protects Hyper-V and how to configure this
protection in Chapter 7 . Now it is time to dig into the restore options we have with
Hyper-V in DPM. With DPM you can restore VMs (virtual machines) to an original
or an alternate Hyper-V host. DPM captures the metadata of the virtual machine
configuration so DPM can restore the VHD and the VM's configuration settings.
This gives DPM the power to restore the entire VM on the same Hyper-V host or an
alternative one. With DPM you can recover VM VHD's and/or their configuration
files to shares and get the restoration of individual files or folders through a feature
called ILR (Item-level Recovery). This feature in DPM allows administrators to
restore files hosted on a Hyper-V virtual machine to a network share or to a volume
on the Hyper-V host server protected by DPM. ILR does not require the restoration
of the virtual machine on which the file(s) were originally hosted. When a VM
is protected at the guest level the restore process is exactly the same as that of a
physical server.
Recovery of a VM to its original location
DPM can recover a VM to its original location in the event a VM becomes corrupted
at the VHD level or the OS level. This consists of recovering the VHD and the
VM's settings as well. This is a straightforward process. Let's look at the steps to
recover a VM:
1. Open the DPM Administrator Console and click the Recovery tab.
2. Under Protected data browse to the Hyper-V host that the virtual machine
you want to recover is on and expand it.
3. Select All Protected Hyper-V Data . Under Recoverable Item , the VMs on
this Hyper-V host will appear.
