So I just purchased a one year subscription because why not…
Trying to see what will happen when/if my main SSD dies (both VM + ESXi boot drive)
I have everything backed up to NFS datastore and it works perfectly.
Now to restore:
./vertical restore /vmfs/volumes/datastore1 --restore-from testvm@ryzen -r 1
This results in 3 files being downloaded… testvm.vmdk + testvm-flat.vmdk in /vmfs/volumes/datastore1/vmfs/volumes/datastore1/testvm (yes, that is not a mistake on my part, it extracts it to this path) … + testvm.vmx in /vmfs/volumes/datastore1/
Why is this happening?
I want all the files to be in /vmfs/volumes/datastore1/testvm.
If I move them manually (which I’m fine doing, this is only like a worth case situation) then the disk is not thin provisioned any more
Can you please try to help a happy customer?
Thank you very much!
