restore vwexplorer backup wihtout vmexplorer on new esxi

Hi

I have a trouble about thie scenario.

In a machine with esxi free edition I installed some vm and one of these is a vmexplorer free edition .
My backup destination is a  NFS on NAS .
Unfortunateli esxi machine adn datastore is broken and I have only backup files (vmexplorer was not  backuped ---can backup vmexplorer itself ? Do you know?).
If  I install a new esxi (same vm version)  and  link NFS backup destination as datastore, can I use successfull vmexplorer backup (file.vmx) to add vmmachine  in vsphere inventory without "vmexplorer restore action" ?

Best regards

Hello Michael,

your question is too complex to be answered in a forum post.

Would you mind to open a support case?

Best regards,

Michael
