When you configure a backup for your VM, the platform will display the backup symbol in the lower right-hand corner of the VM icon.
In some environments the backup system may support restore for VMs that were previously deployed and are now undeployed. If you delete the VM, you cannot access the backup system through the platform.
The platform will request an immediate backup of the VM.
If required, enter backup frequency, or date and/or time
Abiquo uses ISO 8601 and you should check the time standard used in each datacenter with the datacenter owner
Time zones in ISO 8601 are represented as local time (with the location unspecified), as UTC, or as an offset from UTC
The results shown may vary depending on your datacenter's backup system. Backups with a status of "done" or "completed" will have a Restore link enabled in the Action column.
To restore a VM backup:
To display the details of the restore, click on the backup in the Latest backups list.
After the platform finishes the restore, it will display a status, such as "done" or "failed".
After you restore a backup, the VM disks are under the control of the backup system, not the platform. So when you undeploy after restoring a VM, the platform will display a warning popup and delete and remove the VM's disks.
If your environment permits, you may request more than one restore of the same backup. If the status of the restore request is "success" or "failed", Abiquo will reactivate the Restore link and you can click it to request a new restore of the same backup.
