Re: Facing problem with XSIBACKUP 11 on 4 Servers

In an older thread https://33hops.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=20, there were two possibilities raised:

1. The VM isn't registered with ESXi properly (maybe remove and readd it to inventory)
2. The VM was suspended.

The issue was not resolved, but the takeaway is that this is an ESXi error, and XSIbackup just gets told this error by ESXi.

Edit: Google search turned up this thread that has a solution. Take a look:  https://communities.vmware.com/thread/398000

Re: Facing problem with XSIBACKUP 11 on 4 Servers

You are getting this error:

error: cannot delete snapshot

That error is thrown by ESXi itself. XSIBackup asks the system, via a built in command line option to take a snapshot on the VM, and the system responds with that error. You should take a look at your system logs, with especial attention to:

/scratch/log/syslog.log
/scratch/log/vmkernel.log

You have a very obvious error that should be noticeable with a quick glance at the vSphere client:

Skipping invalid VM '15'

There's a registered VM with Id 15 that cannot find its constituent files. You probably deleted it from the datastore but did not unregister it, or the storage device was removed without unregistering the VM.
