This topic describes how to restore a VMware virtual machine (VM) to an on-premises vCenter Server in the Hybrid Backup Recovery (HBR) console.


A VMware VM is backed up. For more information, see Back up VMware VM images.

Background information

  • After you back up the image of a VMware VM, you can use the HBR console to restore the image to an on-premises vCenter Server in the case of VMware VM failure to ensure business continuity.
  • The on-premises VMware VM backup feature of HBR 1.0.13 and later versions allow backup and restore jobs to be managed only in the HBR console. If you have configured on-premises backup plans, re-configure them in the HBR console.


  1. Log on to the HBR console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Backup > VMware Backup & Disaster Recovery.
  3. In the top navigation bar, select the region where the VMware VM resides.
  4. Click the Backups tab.
  5. On the Backups tab, find the backup plan and click Restore to VMware in the Actions column.
    Note You can restore one or more VMware VMs to an on-premises vCenter Server.
  6. In the Create Restore Job panel, set the parameters in the Virtual Machine, Location, Computer, Storage , Network, and Confirm and Execute steps. After you set the parameters, click Create.
    After the restore job is created, you can view information of the job on the Restore Jobs tab. The information includes the status of the job and the volume of data that is restored.
