I have a vCenter Appliance controlling 2 physical ESXI hosts. Veeam backup infrastructure looked at vCenter for VMs and all was working well until the vCenter Appliance died. It resided on a third host which crashed recently and the appliance corrupted. I raised this issue (in the context of Veeam) with support (00935183) who advised me I could add the hosts in directly into Veeam but I would have to create new fulls and lose my previous backup history/chains. I wanted to find out if its possible that I build a new vCenter appliance with same settings etc would Veeam be able to recognise that as though it were the original vCenter.I have tried exporting the database etc in the dead vCenter Appliance but it seems too far gone to do anything with and annoyingly I didn't have a backup.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated
