Backup and logs

Hello,

I´m running the backup using xsibackup-cron. Sometimes I know that the backup process is finished but I dont receive the report email.
In those cases is there any way to check if the backup was correct? Does the xsibackup script exit with a success code(0) that I could check?

My enviroment: ESX version: 5.1 // XSIbackup versión: 9.0.1


This is the log (xsibackup-cron.log) of the last backup I launched using xsibackup-cron :

Re: Backup and logs

The log is incomplete. It looks like the job got stuck at cloning disk

Cloning disk '/vmfs/volumes/HD-838GB/Nube/Debian-Owncloud-100GB.vmdk'...

Check your hardware and free space. It's not normal that the job stops abruptly without ant further notice.
