I had to rebuild my Replicating server due corrupt windows files causing me not to be able to upgrade to the new 9.5.4 version.

After, rebuilding the server, reinstalling the Veeam Backup & Replicating software and importing the backed up config files, I'm getting an error.

When I try to re-scan the local host I'm getting a [esxi-Server.domain.local] Disks and volumes discovery failed Error: The remote name counld not be resolved: 'esxi-Server.domain.local'  Host discovery failed.

Can anyone help me with this?

can you ping esxi-Server.domain.local?

can you tracert to esxi-Server.domain.local ?

that seems a very weird non-fqdn, looks like a lab server ?

Sounds similar to what one of our customers did; used friendly names rather than IP addresses to define the iSCSI connections and then virtualized all their DNS servers. Worked fine until they tried to restart it. Presumably a hosts file or setting up a new temporary DNS server would resolve.

I figured it out.  I had to created a forward lookup for the esxi-hostname.domain.local and it started to replicate.

Thanks for all your help.
