ESXi 5.x, vCenter 5.x
With the release 5.x, VMware has blocked the ability to restore virtual machines to ESX hosts that are managed by vCenter.
Restore virtual machines via vCenter, or restore them via ESX after unmanaging the ESX host from vCenter.
Steps on how to unmanage an ESX host from vCenter:
1. Connect to the ESX host using vSphere Client.
2. Select [Home] [Inventory].
3. Open [Summary] tab.
4. Click [Disassociate host from vCenter Server...] in [Host Management]. (See Figure 3.)
