Restore failure after storage system volume renaming

  • Message

    Some of the storage system snapshots required to restore the VM are missing or inconsistent.

  • Description

    If storage system volumes are renamed, you cannot restore a virtual machine (VM) from its backup that was created prior to renaming volumes.

  • Corrective Action

    If storage system volumes are renamed and you need to restore a VM from a backup created prior to renaming volumes, then complete the following:

    • While restoring a VM from MMC, make sure that "Enable Snapshot Verification" option is unchecked in the Restore Options page of the Restore wizard.

    • While restoring a VM by using PowerShell, make sure that -DisableVerifySnapshot parameter is specified.
