VCSA 7.0 restore issue

I am restoring VCSA 7.0 from Backup which is on FTP. while Step 1 is completed successfully step 2 is getting the error with below statement

Metadata and system validation failed.

Error: Unknown system resource type vtsdblog

Error: Unknown system resource type vtsdb

and so on attached.

I have installed the VCSA 7.0 with default settings and backup taken on FTP. Now when restoring it from backup it throws these errors any clue please ?

Thanks

Try this...

  1. Shut down the VCSA created during stage 1 of restore.
  2. Edit settings of virtual machine.

    Ensure the following settings match the vCenter Server Appliance which was backed up:
    - CPU Hot Add
    - Memory Hot Add
    - Memory assigned
  3. Once settings have been changed and saved, power on virtual machine.
  4. Connect to restored vCenter Server Appliance on port 5480 and continue with restore.

Did you created the backup with the same version and same build of the VCSA?

Yes, all versions are same. However as I am testing the backup and restore, I am now reconfiguring the VCSA (as it's in my test lab) and again take the backup and will try to restore.

I will update here my result once I repeat the same.

Thanks

what happened to this?  I'm getting the same thing.  These Vcenter updates are terrible.  It screwed me up every time.

A few days ago i restored a VCSA 7.0.0a from my backup, firtst i got the metadata validation error too, and a additional info that i should increase the memory from 12 to 16 gb, after i had done that and tryed the restore again all works fine.

So it is important that the new VCSA VM is identical to the source VM...
