How can I restore VMware back to a Flat File with Yosemite Server Backup?

Version 10.0 and above

With Yosemite Server Backup we are able to restore VMware Guest Machines to a flat vmdk file.

  1. Navigate to the Properties of your Backup job.
  2. Expand the Server until you see the VM Host.
  3. Right-Click on the Host and Click on Configuration.

There are two options that pertain to the restoring process:

- Recovery Virtual Machine files to the Staging Area only:
As this indicates, this will restore the files to the staging area, but not send them to the Host / Mount the VM. This will restore the VMDK and VMX files.

- Override the working director specified on the Agent configuration page*:
This will override the Staging Area location on both Restore and Backup.

Additional Notes:
These settings are Global, and will remain after the restore process unless they are manually removed.
