Recovering a virtual machine from the restored files

After restoring the virtual machine disk and configuration files, you can use the VMware vCenter Converter Standalone Client to create a virtual machine using the restored “.vmx” and “.vmdk” files. After a VADP Recovery, you must modify the “.vmx” file so that it matches the disk paths of the restored “.vmdk” files. For more information, see the relevant VMware vCenter Converter Standalone Client documentation.

To restore the virtual machine files to the destination VMware Server, start the VMware vCenter Converter Standalone Client Wizard. To complete the virtual machine recovery, follow the instructions. When the prompt “Select source type” prompt is displayed, select the option “Backup image or third-party virtual machine.” Also set the “Virtual machine file” option to the restored “.vmx” file.

To recover the virtual machine, you must edit the “.vmx” file, and change the datastore path to reflect the restored “.vmdk” files.

2
Open the “.vmx” file.
It must match the “.vmdk” file generated during restore.
4
After modifying the “.vmx” file, start the VMware vCenter Converter Standalone Client Wizard to create the virtual machine.
6
When the “Select source type” prompt is displayed, select “VMware Workstation or other VMware virtual machine.”
7
Set the “Virtual machine file” option to the restored “.vmx” file.
NOTE: In the scenario described in the article http://kb.vmware.com/kb/1019286, the “.vmx” file is not backed up, but the “.vmdk” files are available.
