Restore job failed Error: Error in the application.
The restore fails because the restored files are not recognized as VM disks. When this restore failure occurs, it is because the VM that was backed up has disk files that are missing their .vmdk file extension.
At this time, it is unknown by Veeam Support why the .vmdk file extension could be missing from a production VM. If you experience this restore issue and the VM that was backed up is still present, you are advised to contact VMware Support to request assistance with investigating why the source VM is missing its file extensions.
The following is a workaround that Veeam Support has developed to allow for the restore of a VM that was backed up and had disks that were missing their .vmdk file extension.
