Sure, I tried for searchig in the web, and I have been see this articles.

So, after v-Center recovery, I installed fresh NSX-manager and recover it configuration.

After that, I could not to recovery controller nodes, because button "RESOLVE" just remove controller.

Okay, I recovered controller nodes manually. Then I tried to recover VXLAN configuration via button "RESOLVE ALL" on Host Preparaion tab.

VIBs installed correctry, but now I see error "NSX version not ready" without any reasons. Pressing the button "RESOLVE ALL" does nothing (see screenshot_1).

Attepmts to redeploy edges results to error at screenshon_2.

Try this:

vCenter Web Client, navigate to Home -> Administration -> vCenter Server Extensions -> vSphere ESX Agent Manager -> Configure -> ESX Agencies.

Choose “Resolve All Issues” on “_clustername_VMware Network Fabric”.

If that doesn't do it, check this KB:

Hey, hope you are doing fine:

First of all you should restore the vCenter (by deploying a new one and selecting the restore option 
https://www.vembu.com/blog/vmware-vcsa-6-7-appliance-restore/

Then restore the vDS https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/2032908

And last restore the NSX Manager by deploying a new one and selecting restore option (similar as you did with vCenter)
I suggest you read this: https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-NSX-Data-Center-for-vSphere/6.4/com.vmware.nsx.upgrade.doc/GUID-72...

also, if you can access VMware Learning Zone, there is a really good 30 minutes course on how to backup and restore NSX 
https://vmwarelearningzone.vmware.com/oltpublish/site/openlearn.do?dispatch=previewLesson&id=55e59ae...

Hope this works for you
