Does VSC support restore to alternate location ?

Would “a restore to alternate location” work with 7 mode?

Can you help us understand the KB regarding alternate restores from the VSC plugin (

Does the following note only apply to only Data ONTAP 7-Mode?

Note: VSC for VMware does not allow for alternate restore locations. To do this, you will need to mount the backup using the mount button on the backups screen of Backup and Recovery. Then, you can copy the VMDK or add the virtual machine to inventory and migrate it to a new location. Be sure to tell vCenter that you have 'copied' the virtual machine when prompted if you did not remove the original one from inventory first. 


1) Alternate restore location is possible in cDOT, correct?

2) Does a roadmap exist to add this feature in 7-mode?

the customer on this problem found that the VSC console has a restore to alternate location feature built in.  However, it doesn’t work for them even though it exist. It is believed it exists because it works with cDOT but not 7-mode which they are running.
