Change in VSphere 5 changing how restore can be done
VMware does not support the restore of virtual machines directly to an ESX 5.x
server that is managed by vCenter. To restore the virtual machine, select the
vCenter server as the destination.
As an alternative, you can give NetBackup access to a dedicated restore ESX
server. SAN-based restores that go directly to a restore ESX server are faster
than restores through the vCenter server. For more information, see “Adding
NetBackup credentials for VMware" in the NetBackup for VMware Administrator's
