esxi 5.5 and VSC 6.2 Single File Restore Problem


hello together,


what is working:

restoring an entire Maschine or Disk, but we cannot restore single files from an Backup via VSC.


When i tried to attach a disk


NETAPP VSC -> attach virtual disk i always get

No backups are available whose disk can be attached


I know that there was an option with SingleFileRestore in older versions, but attach a disk from a backup would solve my problems.


any idea how to get this working ?


We have Ubuntu and Windows Virtual Machines


thanks and regards



hi dormelchen



VSC6.2 Single file restore work with Snap Center. 


you can deploy snapcenter and register VSC 6.2 with Snap Center. 


check the restore logs in SnapCenter GUI-- under "Monitor".





The Attach Virtual Disk option is available if you have VSC integrated with SnapCenter.


hello this is integrated in VSC 6.2 in the vSphere Administration menu


Would you explain what this means?


I'm having this same problem and the only way I'm able to perform a single file restore is to mount a backup and dig the VMDK out of the cloned datastore myself.
