In order to restore the VM a VM Files restore must be performed. This type of restore will restore the VM Files directly to the datastore, without attempting to register the restored VM.
- Restore the VM Files to the datastore folder.
Please keep in mind you must manually specify the host and folder on the datastore where the restored information will be placed.
- After the VM Files restore completes, edit the VMX and remove any workingDir entries.
Note: The VMX file can be edited from within Veeam Backup & Replication using the Files view.
- After correcting the VMX, manualy register the VM to inventory.
If you are unsure on how to proceed, please contact VMware support for assistaance with VMX modifications.
