Backup completed: Failed - Unable to enumerate all Disks

I have two Esxi 6.7 (free version) hyper-visors. I was able to use xsibackup to make backup of VM's on one server to the other.

However when I go to restore the VM's on the second server where they got backed up I get the following error:

Backup completed: Failed - Unable to enumerate all Disks

This happened to both my VM's running windows server.

My Debian VM backed up and restored fine on the second server.

Any advice?


Both servers are at these versions:
Client version: 1.33.3
Client build number: 12923304
ESXi version: 6.7.0
ESXi build number: 13006603

Your .vmx file is probably pointing to the wrong disks for some reason. Just edit it and correct the disks paths.

Re: Backup completed: Failed - Unable to enumerate all Disks

First off, thank you for replying so promptly.

Second while waiting for a reply I deleted the backups and attempted them again.

For whatever reason this time it worked and the VM loads on the backup server. Yay!!!

I ran the exact same command each time.

The terminal window reported many errors (even the second time), and at the conclusion it says.

"Errors detected in backup, check logs"

the ./xsi-dir/var/log/xsibackup.log on both the source and destination servers never get any entries and are 0kb in size.

Are the actual logs stored in a different place?  Which log should get populated the source or destination server? or both?

I would just like to see what is being reported and perhaps I can glean more information for future backups.

Thank you again for getting back to me, I am almost certain I will have more questions as I test on a few other VMs.

In MY CASE i removed the VMSD file containing a list of all the snapshots which supposed to exist but didnt, since i only had a Flat VMDK file. I booted and backup appears to be intact.

Re: Backup completed: Failed - Unable to enumerate all Disks

Thanks for the update! Are your xsibackup.log files populating?
