XSIBACKUP errors detected

Hello,

I´using ESXi 6.5 with XSIBACKUP-FREE 9.0.2 since several month.

Since about one week I get the following errors:



Tue Jun 6 02:00:03 UTC 2017

Done hot backup, using vmkfstools.

Available space in device /vmfs/volumes/backup after backup: 321 Gb.
Complete backup elapsed time: 13 min
The ESXi configuration was saved to /vmfs/volumes/backup/20170606020002


What does the copy status KO! mean?
What must I change to fix it?

Thanks

Re: XSIBACKUP errors detected

KO is just OK reversed meaning it didn't work.

Use the ESXi client and go into the Snapshot Manager for the relevant VM and delete any snapshots.  If you run the command again it should then work.

Re: XSIBACKUP errors detected

Even though VMWare ESXi is probably the most stable virtualization hypervisor, the snapshotting subsystem is its most unstable part. How often you run into snapshots not being created or deleted kind of problems, will greatly depend on the type of OS you are running, your hardware and also and most important, how often you check the event viewer and consolidate your snapshot chains as requested by the ESXi system.

Also, install VMWare Tools in Windows systems and open-vm-tools in Linux OSs, use GPT instead of MBR and try to use well proven chipsets in your hardware, that will help minimize problems.

In regards to K.O., it's just an acronym that stands for "knocked out" in opposition to O.K. (zero killed).
