    Can I use CommVault to restore one of my Virtual Machine into a physical server?

    My Goal is to convert the Virtual Machine into a physical server.

    You can install the appropriate file system agent within the VM guest, and then perform a full system restore or 1 Touch restore to the physical server.

    Can I convert a Virtual machine into a physical machine?

    Yes. Follow the steps given below to convert a virtual machine into a physical machine:

    1. Ensure that you have enabled 1-Touch backup on the virtual machine and you have performed atleast one full backup.
    2. Create a response file for the virtual machine and  perform the Non-Interactive Restore using the response file.

      For more information about creating response file for a Windows machine, refer to Creating a Response File for Non-Interactive Restores Using 1-Touch.

      For more information about creating response file for a Linux machine, refer to Non-Interactive Restore.

      During Non interactive restore, copy the response file on a USB drive and connect the USB drive to a physical machine.
