Solution



1. Open the restore window and select the data which needs to be restored.  In this example, it will be from the ESX server within the selection list.

2. Make sure the account used for the restore is the same as it was at the time of backups by verifying it under resource credentials

 

3. Select VMware Virtual infrastructure Tab under settings and clear the check box "Add restored virtual machines to VirtualCenter or ESX Sserver Inventory"

 

4. Specify the path on a NTFS volume that is local to the selected server for temporary storage of the restore data (C:Temp as mentioned in the above image).

5. Run the restore again.
