Dear community and developers,
For some business logic reasons, we have numerous VMs with duplicate names in the vCenter inventory. There is no problem performing a backup, but recently I had to perform a restore and quite surprisingly, there is no support for restore selection based on anything than a flat VM name ( I am talking about restoring from backup here, not infrastructure). No source folder, source VM tag, nothing.
Now if I had a single VM, I could work something out, but I have ~50 of them. I opened a case with support and long story short, got an answer that there is no way to achieve what I wanted.
Even playing with powershell interface did not produce any results.
For the time being, I've split the folders to different backup jobs, but this is costing us some deduplication loss and is less convenient.
Does anyone have suggestions how to solve this problem?
Are we the only ones having a problem with the restore browser limitation?
