Creating a Passkey for Virtual Machine Restores


An owner of a virtual machine can create a passkey that can be used to perform restore operations. When a passkey is configured, the user performing a restore must enter the passkey to perform the operation.

Any user who has permissions for the virtual machine can use the passkey.

Passkeys can be configured by an MSP administrator in a multi-tenant setup, by a CommCell administrator in a standalone configuration, or by a tenant administrator for a company. If passkeys are defined at multiple levels, the lowest level passkey takes precedence. For example, a passkey that is configured for a company takes precedence over a passkey that is configured for a CommCell environment.
