    Hi @Vishu

    Thank you for asking this question on the **Microsoft Q&A Platform. **

    When you restore a VM in another subscription, what you are doing is creating a new VM with the restore point that you choose, in that screen you can set the VM name.


    • This name will be at the Azure level, and at the OS level, it will have the same name (and credentials) as the original VM.
    • If the VM has access to your active directory, it will authenticate as the original VM, this will cause authentication issues.

    Hope this helps!
