Normally to transplant a VM to different vCenter, I do Veeam bkup of the VM and transfer it over to new network and restore it from another Veeam server. But in case of this VM (old Win 2008 OS), Veeam gives error during restore: "invalid configuration for device '0'" and *.vmdk (disk) files are not restored at all.

In the source vCenter, it is possible to do vMotion of this VM, but I cannot do OVF export (times out) nor create a clone (Invalid configuration for device '13'). The VM runs fine.

How may I transplant this VM to new location? Thanks.
