--backup-room[=NNNGb]

--backup-room[=NNNGb]

Is this parameter specific to the VM being backed up (--backup-vms="VM1") or is it for all VM's in that location and will XSIBackup just remove the oldest in that location regardless of the --backup-vms="VM1" cmdline option?

The reason I'm asking: I have 10 VM's. Some have to be backed up every day, other only once a week so I have multiple XSIBackup cmd's. If it would remove any VM there's a risk it would remove the one that is backed up only once a week.

Thanks!

Re: --backup-room[=NNNGb]

--backup-room is a global parameter. XSIBACKUP-FREE will delete any timestamped folder YYYYMMDDhhmmss it finds in the backup point to make room, along with any VMs it contains. You can organize your backups per folders and/or split them into different backup jobs to achieve what you want.

UPDATE:

Since version 10 the mask used to store backups and make room by deleting folders is stored as a variable at the conf/xsiopts file

Hi Daniel,

Exactly!
Does it check the contents of the folder or will it just do an equivalent of rm -Rf <folder> ?

Thanks!
