Restoring when disk excluded


#1

I am attempting to restore my VM which has a disk excluded from the backup. The restore runs fine in putty however, when I go to boot up ESX tells me there is a missing VMDK and cannot boot. I believe this is due to the excluded disk.

Any ideas? How can I get it to boot?

You need to manually remove from the .vmx file the line referencing the excluded VMDK file.
