Restoring a VMware vCenter VM

Post by marius roma » Oct 05, 2017 11:21 am

I realize that the problem is problably more a VMware than a Veeam issue, but I hope that comebody can help anyway.
A VMware vSphere 5.5 infrastructure is based on 4 VMware ESXi 5.5 servers.
One of the ESXi server hosts a VM; acting as vCenter.
There was an internal problem so the vCenter stopped working.
I restored the VMware vCenter from a Veeam backup taken 2 days ago to one of the ESXi hosts and the restore worked fine.
I powered on the restored vCenter but it looks that the information in the DB are not up-to-date and that the restored vCenter is unable to update information about VMs from the ESXi nodes and to manage VMs.
What should I do to update the restore vCenter so that it can manage the VMs and the ESXi hosts?

Hi Mario,
thank you for your request. I think the best option here is to create a VMware ticket as your vCenter do not work with the ESXi hosts.

Can you please add here the exact error messages of the vCenter, maybe we can help here then.
