I have a host of errors

I have been having problems several problems for a few weeks with xsipro not running as a cron task.
I uninstalled cron today from xsibackup gui
I installed con again today from xsibackup gui

I then ran start of this job from inside the xsibackup gui

This is the email report edited to remove some details in names.
How do I correct all these issues?

Thanks

Re: I have a host of errors

First problem you have to solve is with snapshot management. Snapshots cannot be deleted. That's an ESXi inner mechanism, so finding why it fails is your main concern.

You have this error on your log: Skipping invalid VM '20'. Its is indicating that your host's registry is not in good condition and that could lead to all sort of errors, including problems with snapshots.

You need to fix your host before actually trying to use XSIBackup

Re: I have a host of errors

Thanks for the feedback.

Here is what I did:

There all appear to have been created by xsibackupdiff and can be deleted via cli.
