If you mistakenly deleted a vApp by using vCloud Director, you can use the out-of-place restore option to restore that vApp when the vApp is protected by the Data Protection Service.

To restore a deleted vApp, the vApp must be protected by the Data Protection Service. See About Data Protection Policies.

For information about deleting vApps, see Delete a vApp in vCloud Director User's Guide.

Note

In vCloud Air, vApps and the virtual machines they contain typically have a one-to-one correspondence.

Verify that you have a subscription to the Data Protection Service.

You must have virtual administrator privileges in vCloud Air to restore deleted vApps.
