Background

With NAKIVO Backup & Replication, you can add the necessary ESXi host to inventory and run a recovery job even if vCenter Server is unavailable. You can add the same ESXi multiple times to inventory.  

Solution

     vSphere Desktop Client
     vSphere Web Client
  2. Add the required ESXi host to inventory.

  3. Create and run a recovery job.

  4. Delete the recovery job.

  5. Remove the ESXi host from inventory.

  6. Refresh the vCenter item in inventory.

  7. Add the disassociated VMware Host back to the vCenter Server.
