OK. Going to have a raw ESXi server.
Also, got a windows 2008 server with tape drive etc which is networked to this ESXi. Got backup tapes for both Netbackup and BackupExec (different method for different hosts).
First instance, I guess I need to install backup/restore clients on Windows 2008 server. But how do I restore a VM in this way?
Do I need to build a VM first and then restore from tape?
