-Perform an VM image level backup (saveset *FULL*) with Networker
-Shutdown the VM
-Remove the VM from the inventory of vCenter
-Rename the directory of the VM on the Datastore
-Then on the VADP proxy host, perform a saveset recovery via Networker User (Networker Client)

You’ll notice the the recover VM will reappear in vSphere and the directories will be present on the datastore.
