7. Change the host server if you want to or leave the defaults and click next

8. Change the datastore as required. If you don’t have enough space on the original location select a datastore with enough free space.

9. On the folder page click Name and check “add suffix”


This is an important step to ensure the VM is not overwritten.

10. On Network click the Disconnected button. This will ensure there are no IP address conflicts when you restore the VM
