Remap MoRef ID of VMs & avoid backup job failure when replacing a vCenter Server



  • alt text

    "Object with reference <vmname> was not found in the hierarchy cache." Have you ever met such an error message during replacing the vCenter Server configured in Veeam Backup & Replication? Or maybe in the case of an inventory change in the vCenter? A similar message pops up when a Virtual Machine's MoRef changes. To complete backup jobs successfully, you need to re-map the MoRef ID of protected VMs, namely to keep same MoRef IDs for all protected virtual machines. How should that be done?

    Read the article by Paolo Valsecchi, a System Engineer, to find out how to remap MoRef ID of protected VMs, avoid backup jobs failure, and replace the vCenter Server safely.
