I did manage to restore a single file(or 2) from a VM backup - you need to use a recovery server with NBU client software installed onto it - then copy the file over to the final destination. I just used the Media server as the files were very small(becarefull of space usage). It worked.

 

But the FULL VM system(to original location/overwrite AND to new location/name) fails with mentioned and attached error.

 

There must be some trick.

What policy type was used for the backup?  VMware or Flashbackup-Windows?

Policy for backup was Flashbackup-Windows.

Is this correct? for file AND full system restores on the VM?

Please remember this is NBU 7.1

As far as I can see there is no VMware option on the policies in NBU7.1.

Correct - VMware policy type is only an option as from NBU 7.5.
