Backup exec 15 - Vmware restore with individual files

Hello Guys,

I am reading around but I cannot seem to see a straight answer. Can someone tell me please what I need to do to be able to restore individual files from a VMWare server?

I have a backup running of the vcentre including any VM's i need to backup with GRT enable BUT when I go for the restore I can only restore the VMDK file.

Is there a possibility to restore individual files from that backup job?

I can create a separate job for the specific VM I would like to restore individual files from and that works fine but it is not from the Vcentre backup job. Is that the only way?

 

Thank you in advanc

You can also redirect the folder/file(s) to the media server and then copy them to the VM. This would be instead of installing an agent on the VM.

To restore individual files/folders, you need to expand the node with the netbios name of the VM.  Also, you need to install the remote agent in the VM.
