Hello everyone. I'm using vmware 6.7 for both my host and vcenter but when trying to restore a VM from backups I receive a error. Please see the error below:

The resource '42' is in use. com.vmware.vim.vpxd.dvs.portinUse.label

Any help would be great:

 

Thanks

Tony

Hi. From what I could find online, the issue seems to be related to the virtual distributed switch port assignment. The restored VM is possibly trying to use the same ports already assigned to the still existing original VM. If this is so, you may possibly resolve the issue by (at least temporarily) changing the port assignment for the original VM.

Also, if you could search for this error in the ESXi logs, it will show a more detailed explanation of the exact error cause.

@marijan thank you that worked! I changed the network adapter back to VM Network and was able to complete the backup.
