Someone deleted a VM server and recovery has been confusing since we don't know where the server or it's disks were before deletion.

Despite the deleted servers vmdk being 15TB, I'm not sure how to perform a snaprestore restor-file on a SAN lun as I hear it's either not supported or unconventional to do but we don't have Snapcenter.

Can we make a clone of a snapshot instead, giving it a lun id and then attaching that datastore to the esx host. What's the best method to do this?
