Choosing a restore proxy for performing a Full VM restore


A user needs to restore a VM across a WAN connection or a location where choosing a specific proxy would allow the restore to work faster.


A VM is down and needs restored as fast as possible.


During a Full VM restore you can choose which proxy processes the restore. On the Restore Mode page there is an option to pick the proxy you use to perform the restore. See image below.
