When performing a FullVM restore, the restore may fail if the datastore used at backup time ended with a period.
The combination of these factors can lead to a failed recovery:
Windows file system naming conventions do not support terminating periods. This interferes with the ability of the Windows recovery host to access data on the NetBackup media server via NBFSD.
Please verify all your vSphere datastores do not end with a period ".".
