VMware ESX 3 vcbRestore quick restore

After backing up a VMWESX VM with vcbMounter you can use vcbRestore to perform a quick restore on another ESX server

Edit the catalog file

  • change SOURCE hostname to DEST hostname
  • check the same “resource pool” exists on DEST host (if not change it so it does)

for example

  • host=myserver.mydomain
  • resourcepool= “/ha-folder-root/ha-datacenter/host/myserver.mydomain/Resources”
