    We are using ESXi 6.0 U1 version now we are going to upgrade from ESXi 6.0 to 6.5 version.

    We are not using any backup software so,I have taken the virtual machine backup manually.

    In ESXi 6.5 version Vsphere client is not available by using the vsphere web client how to restore the virtual machine backup.

    Hi ,

    if you have taken backup as download vm folder You can upload the entire VM folder to data tore from vsphere 6.5 web client .

    Alternative - You can Export VM as OVF Template  and later Import .

    Shutdown the  VM you want to back-up.

    Delete and consolidate any snapshots  , if any there .

    Highlight the VM in the left pane. Click File — Export OVF Template.
