How to recover your VMware Horizon View environment when someone killed the vCenter database

Today was one of those days you wish weekend was there after the day ended. I had an appointment with the customer to finish the VMware AirWatch environment implementation. Arriving in the morning I heard that no one could log on. quickly opening a browser and looking at the administrator console showed the issue. 300 desktops in error mode and a red alert next to the VMware vCenter server. The administrators informed me that they asked someone to do some work on the vCenter database. The database got corrupted a bit due to several power outages in the past 6 months. The recovery of the database resulted in data loss and now VMware vCenter was not operating correctly. Mind you this vCenter server is still a Windows server based one with a external SQL database.

Without a VMware vCenter database you can’t recover desktops having issues. VMware Horizon View is dependent on the vCenter server. So my planning changed, no AirWatch but recovering Horizon View. I thought it might be helpful to write little blog about how to solve this kind of disaster. There are several thoughts that crossed my mind and I’d like to share them with you.
