Hyper-V VM restore with Data Protector 9.09 117 (and DP 10.xx): documentation not accurate

Hyper-V VM restore with Data Protector 9.09 117 (and DP 10.xx): documentation not accurate

0 Votes

HPE Data Protector 9.09 CLI Reference Guide is wrong with hyper-v restore.
Page 232, point 17
Virtual Environment (Restoring virtual machines outside a Microsoft Hyper-V system): Suppose the virtual machines "VM1" with the GUID "54C22930-E3B9-43AA-AFCD-1E90BB99F130" was backed up in the session "2013/02/12-5" from the Microsoft Hyper-V system "hyperv.company.com", using the "Hyper-V Image" backup method. To restore the virtual machine outside the Microsoft Hyper-V system, to the directory "c:\tmp" on the restore client "client.company.com", execute:
omnir -veagent -virtual-environment hyperv -barhost client.company.com -apphost hyperv.company.com -instance hyperv -session 2013/2/12-5 -vm 54C22930-E3B9-43AA-AFCD-1E90BB99F130 -directory c:\tmp

This is not working as expected: if you do that the restore destination is not client.company.com but hyperv.company.com

I tried several combinations and the only way to restore virtual machine is to add -destination client.company.com

I think DP 10.xx documentation is wrong too.

Scenario:
When following HPE Data Protector 9.09 CLI Reference Guide

Workaround:
add -destination client.compagny.com argument

Best regards,

Hi @ludovic_s,

I have not checked the Data Protector 10.20 documentation, but if you find issues there you can directly submit feedback to the documentation team which is taking care. So this Idea is not required.

Here is the link to the relevant documentation page for 10.20.

CLI reference - omnir
https://docs.microfocus.com/itom/Data_Protector:2018.11/Use/cli_reference/1/omnir

Don't expect that the Data Protector 9.x documentation gets updated since the support for 9.x ends in June 2019.

Regards,
