TDP for Database SQL

ISP Server V8.1.11
ISP Client V8.1.9
TDP for Database SQL 8.1.9

AlwaysOn DB configured on TDP for Database SQL with
11 Instance (Active/Inactive) containing more than 70 SQL Database using MMC.

When doing selective Restore (Active and Inactive) for particular database the time to get Database listing takes long, around 30 to 45 minutes or sometimes much longer.
This is for SQL Database Administrator not acceptable.
The selection "inactive backup" shows all inactive backup from all databases which takes long time.
