Does anyone have any information about vCSA restore failure on Veeam B&R?
Our customers use Veeam B&R to get a backup of their vSphere environment.
ESXi 6.7 Update2 Build:13981272
vCSA 6.7 Update 2c Build:14070457
Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 4b (188.8.131.5266)
The environment has three ESXi hosts and is connected to shared storage.
The original vCSA exists in ESXi1.
As a restore test, the original vCSA was stopped from ESXi1 and deleted.
After that, Veeam B & R performed Entire VM Restore on the ESXi1 host.
However, the restore fails with the following error:
