Netbackup restore of vmx files

We have Netbackup 7.6 installed to backup our virtual environment. We recently had a storage crash we resulted in 2 corrupt vmx files and did a full restore of the entire virtual machine to before our storage incident. However it did not restore a working vmx file and we thus had to re-create the vmx file manually.

Question does Netbackup actually backup .vmx files …. ?  Is there a special procedure in doing a restore to ensure the vmx file is replaced?

Cheers

For restore:
If backups are captured using the vStorage API the only files displayed will be vmdk files.  
 

If backups are captured using the VMware Consolidated Backup (VCB) Framework the files displayed will incude *.vmx, *.vmdk, *.log, etc.

You need to elaborate, how did you carry out the backup and was it successful?

vmx files are not backed up in vADP backups. In VMware backup, NetBackup read and save VM configuration, but it does not actually backup whole vmx file. It is better to recreate VM and attach existing vmdks to new VM.

Or recover VM in NetBackup.VM will be recreated based on VM configuration saved at backup time. However, vmdk will be restored from backup as well.
