is it possible to restore a delete vm?

Our setup is a 4 node simplivity stretched cluster with 2 nodes in both locations(Zone A & B). My question is how would you restore a deleted vm. is this possible? What happens to the backups once a vm is deleted.

 

Thanks

Absolutely, as long as you have a backup.

From the cluster, <right-click> the cluster object, select All SimpliVity Actions; Search Backups

If a backup exists, you will find it in this screen - you can search by name.

Find the backup, and restore it.

"Search Backups" from the Cluster object only returns 500 backups.

How do I find more backups? I see no way to scoll through them. Searching with a filter by Virtual Machine name seems flawed. I've tried "starts with", contains, etc.

Has anyone else had this issue?

You can search for backups on the virtual machine object under all simplivity actions.

How do you mean flawed ? Have you tried serching via cli ?

Re: is it possible to restore a delete vm?

I was using search via the GUI.

The backup search function does allow one to filter by VM name. My issue was that I was not using exact case on the VM name.

It sounds like I may need to resort to the CLI to get a list of all backups. I'll check it out.

Thanks.
