Error MKROOM01

Hi,

I have the XSIBACKUP-FREE 11.0.1 running on VMWare ESXI 6.5

I receive always an email with the error:
The eldest folders were deleted to make room:
Error MKROOM01: cannot make 892G of room, only 437G can be made available

And when i make an

 ls -alh

i have the correct space per file but not in total!

ls -alh /usb/backup/VMWARE/Lua-IPBrick/ total 660G drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4.0K Nov 19 05:35 .
drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 4.0K Nov 11 21:50 ..

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 3.9K Nov 19 05:35 IPBrick.vmx
-rw------- 1 root root 3.2K Nov 19 03:23 IPBrick.vmxf

but with the

du

command i have this:

du -sh /usb/backup/VMWARE/Lua-IPBrick/*
32G     /usb/backup/VMWARE/Lua-IPBrick/IPBrick_0-flat.vmdk
4.0K    /usb/backup/VMWARE/Lua-IPBrick/IPBrick_0.vmdk

12K     /usb/backup/VMWARE/Lua-IPBrick/IPBrick.nvram

4.0K    /usb/backup/VMWARE/Lua-IPBrick/IPBrick.vmx
4.0K    /usb/backup/VMWARE/Lua-IPBrick/IPBrick.vmxf

I have space free to make the backup! - in this disk i have 550G reserved to another files!

df -h
Filesystem                   Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sdb                     1.8T  1.4T  345G  81% /usb

This is my job

Re: Error MKROOM01

You don't have enough room to make the backup, add more backup space to your backup device.
Take on account that XSIBackup will only consider folders that meet the datedirmask as defined in the xsi-dir/conf/xsiopts file.

# This file contains some options (c) XSIBackup can use when executed
# (c) XSIBackup will operate well with default values, do not edit this
# file, unless you are absolutely sure of what you're doing and why you
# are doing it. You edit this file under your sole responsability.

# This variable below holds the xsi installation path in remote systems
# (c) XSIBackup will first try to determine the remote installation path
# dynamically for every backup job, if it finds duplicate installations
# or can't find one, it will default to the hardcoded value below
xsidefaultpath="/vmfs/volumes/datastore1/xsi-dir"

# The following variable holds the directory mask XSIBackup will use when
# deleting older dirs at the time to make room, you do not need to change it
# the pattern below is not a REGEX, but a regular Linux search pattern, it
# checks YYYYMMDDhhmmss strings. Bounds are not checked, just type/length
datedirmask="20[1-3][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9]"

# Set the amount of megabytes which checksums will be compared after backup
# starting at the beggining of the file. This is not a complete check, but
# quite often this portion of the disk will hold the superblock, so a change
# in a single file will result in this portion of the disk being different
trivialcheck=500

# This is the default username (c) XSIBackup will use when connecting to
# the backup server over SSH. All "over IP" backups are tunneled through
# an ssh tunnel. You must ensure that the remote user has appropiate
# permissions to perform the required backup job tasks.
defremusr=root

# This variable sets wether XSIBackup will check for new versions or not
# Set it to -no- if your DNS client takes too long to respond and it is
# delaying program execution
checkver=yes

# This value controls the level of verbosity, it can take values, set it
# above 2 to get detailed warnings about missing files, like .nvram or
# .vmxf which are not neccessarily present in all VMs
errverb=2

# Rotate logs when they reach N megabytes, default is 50M
rotate_log_size=50

Re: Error MKROOM01

Yes, the --date-dir argument allows to do so. Currently it is only available in the Pro version.
