Re: Restore process from XSITool repo?

Just use the --restore-vms command, pointing it to the XSITools repository:

./xsibackup --restore-vms=/vmfs/volumes/datastore1/backup/May-08

You'll se a list of VMs to restore that you can filter if it's too long.
Note that in this case I pasted the output of several looped XSITools backups of the same VM (W703).

RESTORE VIRTUAL MACHINES:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
XSIBACKUP-PRO is able to detect VMs up to two levels below the provided path
This way it can detect VMs stored to the root of it or in timestamped subfolders
Select one of the folders at /vmfs/volumes/datastore1/backup/May-08, or filter the results:
