Hi,

1. Since you used "Stop immediately", the job terminated instantly, thus the restore point is not usable.
2. In case of "Gracefull stop" the VMs that has succeeded to process and VMs that are being processed will have usable restore points. If you have only one VM in the job then it will be usable.

Thanks

If the job had started processing both VMs before you pressed "Stop" then both VMs can be restored from the backup.

Yes, that's correct. If you gracefully stop the job before it gets to processing of the second VM, only VM1 restore point will be useful.

Thanks
