      If you have a backup of an ESXi host configuration, you can restore that configutation to VMware hosts. Here’s how to restore the VMware host configutation:

      1. Log onto the vCenter server
      2. Run the following Vsphere PowerCLI commandlet:

        Connect-VIServer -server <> -User root -Password <>

        Set-VMHostFirmware -VMHost <> -Restore -SourcePath C:\hostbackup\Backup.tgz -HostUser <> -HostPassword <>

      This will restore the backup of the VMware host configuration from C:\hostbackup\Backup.tgz, which is stored on the vCenter server.
