Whch backup solution is used to take back for virtual machine. Orginl VM is powerd on State. ?
I am using the ghettoVCB script to take the backup and to restore it. The original VM is powered on as well.
When I try to restore the VM directly on the aready exisitng one, I am getting the error that the VM already exists. See the screenshot below.
I do not want to create a cloned image every time I restore. Can someone advice me on how can I achieve a restore without cloning each time to a new VM?
Your help will be greatly appreciated!
If you don't want to clone it again. What you could do is
Remove the broken one from the inventory, and then add the backup back to the inventory.
But one thing concern is, your backup storage is it high performance?
Hi there. I know it's been a while since this thread but I was wondering if you came up with a solution for this. I'd like to do the same thing and restore "on top of" the existing VM rather than create a clone.
