Restoring vCenter using vDR

Our vCenter VM crapped out while migrating the database. Had to restore it using vDR. Rather interesting experience. For those who haven't had the pleasure here are the steps:

1. Blame the network guy
2. Find the host vDR is running on (setup affinity rule to limit search)
3. Remove said host from vCenter (Summary > Host Management > Disassociate from vCenter)
4. Log into vDR
5. Restore vCenter
6. Blame the network guy
