Re: Why this error occurs

You aren't even posting the job that produced it.

Follow the Ockham's razor principle in this case too. If the output is telling you there isn't any VM to backup, then, the most likely cause is exactly that.

You might be making some wrong asumption, there may be something mispelled or your job might not be well built, but as you didn't publish it in the post, we can't offer you an answer.

Re: Why this error occurs

You have mispelled the argument, it's --backup-vms and not --backup-wms

Correct job:

./xsibackup --backup-type=custom --backup-vms="backup01" --backup-point=/vmfs/volumes/USB-Storage/CopiaSeguridad
