unable to restore vm after deleted from vcenter

Veeam Logoby cmfirstgroup » Thu Jun 15, 2017 9:03 pm

hi - we are using veeam br 9.5 and esx5.5. had several vm's backed up that were re-added in vcenter (removed from inventory, added back with new ID's). how do we restore one of these vm's? i've tried restoring from files, viewing vib files, etc.

thanks, david

Hi, I am not sure I understand your question? Normally you just start the Restore wizard, and perform the full VM restore by selecting VM from backup, and the required restore point.

i thought that as well, but it appears to get references to backups from vcenter/vsphere. since deleted out of there there's no way to find it in the files? maybe i need a utility to browse .vib files?

What happens, if you go to Backups node -> Disk -> select required backup -> expand it -> chose given VM -> right-click on it and try to restore?

Hi.

Did you get any more response on this? I am having the exact same issue.

Is this by design(!)?
