Lost vCenter and cannot restore from backup

This post was originally published on this site

Hello,

 

First Question:

Our vCenter server has crashed and we’re having issues trying to figure out how to restore it from backup.  We backup to the cloud and our backup solution authenticates through vCenter to backup/restore VMs….so we’re not able to restore without vCenter, it seems.  Any ideas?

 

Second Question:

We have made some VM changes directly on hosts since our vCenter has been lost.  If we restore our vCenter will we lose those changes?  We haven’t made any networking changes, we have simply deleted/added a few VMs for the most part.

 

Thanks for any help!

 

Matt
