The docs don't say how to backup all VMs like you can in XSIBackup-PRO.
I want to always backup all VMs running or shutdown.
As our end users can deploy and destroy VMs using a web frontend(Open Nebula), it would be an accounting nightmare to have to update a VMs( ) list. And that doesn't even take into account having VMs move via vMotion.
Also on the note of vMotion, I didn't see in the docs the option to temp turn off vMotion while running a backup.
You may use a source argument like the following:
"VMs(RUNNING)" "VMs(ALL)" # Example ./xsibackup --backup "VMs(ALL)" /vmfs/volumes/backup01 --email@example.com --use-smtp=3 ./xsibackup --backup "VMs(RUNNING)" firstname.lastname@example.org:22:/vmfs/volumes/backup01 --email@example.com --use-smtp=3
This two options will be fully documented in the next minor update, although there isn't anything else to say, they are self explanatory.
