Forgive me if I'm missing something obvious. Since the vbm contains the details of all the VMs and their restore points, and I'm extracting the VMs with no vbm to make use of, there's nothing to map back to?
For example, there's two print servers which I'm creating a fresh copy job for. I've moved their vbks over into another volume, but can't map back since B&R can't find their chain (the original one is in a different volume now). Initiating the job has just creates the one restore point in the standard disk copies.
I can only import the existing vbks one at a time, which is a nightmare since I'm going to need to do this hundreds upon hundreds of times, and they're not part of the chain which removes all the visibility and ease of restoration. Am happy enough to generate a vbm and 'insert' the existing vbks if possible, using the Veeam PSSnapin meta generator, or bulk importing all the vbks in the GUI?
