XSIBackup-DC GUI

This page indicates that XSIBackup-DC has a GUI:
https://33hops.com/xsibackup-vmware-esxi-backup.html

I've configured PuTTY as described here, however no GUI pops up when I run xsibackup:

Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

Re: XSIBackup-DC GUI

(c)XSIBackup-Pro has a GUI, DC version has TUIs (Text User Interffaces) to fulfill some tasks as --smtp-add or --smtp-check, it will have a GUI in a couple of weeks at most when we release version 1.4.0.0

Re: XSIBackup-DC GUI

Thank you.  I was able to figure out the command line options successfully, but I do look forward to having a GUI.

Re: XSIBackup-DC GUI

I try to use the new GUI but when I run xsibackup-gui it says "Only one instance of the GUI is allowed at a time". I have restarted the ESXi server and I get the same result.

Re: XSIBackup-DC GUI

For some reason the GUI was abruptly terminated and left its lock file (.guilock) there, just remove it manually.
From the install dir.

# rm -rf .guilock

This will rarely happen, as the GUI will trap Linux signalling, like Ctrl+C and still delete the lock file on exit.
