    Currently doing VM backups trough our Vcenter. V10 sp14

    We only have Vcenter in our production enviroment, we have a disater recovery test, at our test the vcenter isn't available.

    Is there a way to do a restore straight to a host and not go through vcenter?

    Just specify the ESXi hostname, username, password etc.  Keep in mind that the username will probably be root and the password won't have anything to do with your windows accounts.

    I've done this a couple times, but ultimately, while restores are running I always get a new vCenter appliance set up because that makes sysadmin tasks much easier and then will allow you to do things like vMotion your VMs if you're running low on storage or host RAM, etc.
