hello,

I need to restore windows vm’s from hyper-v to vcenter vmware . I use this article 
https://documentation.commvault.com/v11/essential/114427_converting_to_vmware.html

The restore complete successfully without errors. But when the server is booting up it direct to something like recover mode. At the end of this article it’s written 

  • For converted Windows VMs, disks might be offline. You can bring the disks online manually.
    How do I Bring disk system online?

Hello @Jean-Paul 

What was the backup type you have selected? Was it a synthetic full with incremental?

What was the OS of the VM?

Could you try to restore it with a genuine full backup and see the results and if it fails to boot, share the restore logs?

Best,

Rajiv Singal
