    1. Select the Filename from the appropriate directory and press the “Restore” button.

    2. The Restore process can be viewed by process bar at the bottom of the dialog box

 

The dialog can be closed while the restore is running, but do not close the Administration Console until the restore is complete.


 The jobs progression can be monitored under the Consoles "Backups" tab.

 

Once complete, a pop-up dialog box titled “Restore Ended” with the message “job has completed” will be displayed. You can start the restored VM from the VM list view like any other VM.
