Re: restore fails

Use the command line so that we have some visible output.

./xsibackup --restore-vms=IP:Port:/path/somewhere

You have not provided any details, so just parse your local path to the --restore-vms argument. In your case the IP and Port are not required, as you want to access a local datastore.

Re: restore fails

I already found the command line - and it worked.

But why does the gui always quits?

Re: restore fails

We have checked this functionality and it's working, at least as per each of our test servers. The expected behaviour is to be redirected to the shell and just see the same output than if you were directly using the command line, in fact the differences between both methods are trivial. Sometimes it may take some seconds for the command line to appear after having entered the path in the GUI's restore option. That will depend on the load the host is holding.

We would need some feedback to be able to delve into your issue:

- XSIBackup version.
- ESXi version and build.
- Path to the restore VM and contents of the backup folder.
- The .vmx file contents, to check the VM name and paths.
