We are performing backup over IP and when we use the "VMs(ALL)" parameters, it backs up successfully.

However, when we change the param to selected few VMs, the backup hangs at the first VM at around 85%.

The command we are using is

/scratch/XSI/XSIBackup-DC/xsibackup --backup "VMs(vm-1, vm-2, vm-3, vm-4, vm-5)" user@remote-server:22:/path/to/backup/vm/ --rotate=5

My apologies, missed out on your question.

We are using CentOS 7 in the remote system

#5 Re: General matters » Segmentation fault with restoring VM over IP » 2022-03-29 04:45:50

I'm using version 1.5.1.11.

I've tried with root user and got this error when restoring. There were no issues with the backup

Backup over IP does not have any issue. However, when I tried to do a restoration with the backup folder, it return Segmentation fault in the console.

/scratch/XSI/XSIBackup-DC/xsibackup --restore xsibackup@host:22:/xsibackup/host/20220328165750/VM1 /vmfs/volumes/datastore1/restore

There is no other errors in the logs too.

Thanks

#7 Re: General matters » --rotate with backup over IP » 2022-03-11 10:45:09

Let's say we went with the --backup over IP option. Does --rotate parameter works with backup over IP?

#8 Re: General matters » --rotate with backup over IP » 2022-03-10 01:57:22

The backup on the remote server would be NAS storage and the VM would not be switched on unless restored to the source server.

Is replica still applicable in this case?

Does --rotate parameters work with backup over IP?

From what I understand, when backup is done over IP, it will create a folder with a timestamp and backup into the folder.
However, I've tested --rotate=1 or --rotate=1D but the old backups does not get removed.

Our aim is to backup over IP and to remove the old backup folder everytime a new backup is being executed.

Please advise if this is possible

Thank you
