ESXi host failed, can't restore because VMs were powered on

Post by Brad303 » Jan 11, 2019 8:16 pm

Hi guys,

I had a ESXi host fail hard, and I'm trying to restore the handful of VMs to a new location. Veeam insists on shutting down the servers, but the job fails because it can't communicate with the remote host since it is disconnected.

How do I get around this?

Thanks.

have you tried - 'Restore to a new location, or with different setting?'

if so, and still failed, see here also - https://www.veeam.com/kb1880

could be a hardware version mismatch.

Right, it does look like you're trying to restore to original location.
