Tintri VMstore handles restoring a VM using the Tintri snapshot and cloning features first introduced in Tintri OS v1.4.  A VM clone can be created, registered into vCenter inventory and ready for use within seconds using the Tintri Web UI.


Use the workflow below to create a point-in-time clone of the appropriate source VM:


  1. Browse to the Virtual Machines page in the VMstore Web UI and find the source of the VM you want to restore.  Right-click on the source VM and select Manage in the Snapshots drop down sub-menu.​
