Add a standalone ESXi to restore vcsa?

Veeam Logoby sirhideo » Sat Dec 26, 2015 1:34 am

We have vCenter server added into backup infrastructure and have a backup job to backup vcsa.

I would like to know if one day my vcsa vm is dead how I can get it restored from backup. I have searched through the forum and there was 1 post that mentioned about we can add an ESXi host and start restore vcsa.

I couldn't do that. If I add an ESXi server IP veeam blames that it's already in there (because it is under the vCenter server we have added already)
If I remove vCenter from backup infrastructure it blames some jobs are relying on it.

So in this can't delete and can't add situation how can I restore a VC?
