Feature request: Renaming of a VM in QuickMigration

Post by mx_michael.preis » Sep 19, 2012 1:01 pm

Hi there,

it would be great if it could be possible to rename a VM in QuickMigration after running Instant Recovery. At the moment, I recovered a VM from backup using Instant Recovery to the same ESX host and ressource pool like the production VM (a test VM). In the Instant Recovery wizard I added the suffix "_restored" to the VMs name. Then I deleted the production VM and wanted to start QuickMigration for testing. There is no possibility to rename the Instant Recovery machine. In fact that means that after migration the production VM will also wear the suffix in it's name. Of course it is possible to rename the migrated VM afterwards, but you know that the folder on the datastore still has the suffix "_restored".

Regards, Michael
