Restores

Definition

A Restore is the workflow to bring back the backed up VMs from a TrilioVault Snapshot.
TrilioVault does offer 3 types of restores:
    One Click restore
    Selective restore
    InPlace restore

One Click Restore

The One Click Restore will bring back all VMs from the Snapshot in the same state as they were backed up. They will:
    be located in the same cluster in the same datacenter
    use the same storage domain
    connect to the same network
    have the same flavor
The user can't change any Metadata.
The One Click Restore requires, that the original VM's that have been backed up are deleted or otherwise lost. If even one VM is still existing, will the One Click Restore fail.
The One Click Restore will automatically update the Workload to protect the restored VMs.
There are 2 possibilities to start a One Click Restore.

Inplace Restore

The Inplace Restore covers those use cases, where the VM and its Volumes are still available, but the data got corrupted or needs to a rollback for other reasons.
It allows the user to restore only the data of a selected Volume, which is part of a backup.
The Inplace Restore only works when the original VM and the original Volume are still available and connected. TrilioVault is checking this by the saved Object-ID.
The Inplace Restore will not create any new RHV resources. Please use one of the other restore options if new Volumes or VMs are required.
