ERROR (NOVM2BAK), details Error: no VMs to backup

Dear Forum,

I have been using XSIBACKUP-FREE for a long time to back up numerous vms.
For 2 weeks now I have been receiving this error:

2021-01-25T18:49:18|  Error NOVM2BAK: no VMs to backup

The wm that I would backup is : p1-Printserver and it is on, up running and works well. I regularly receive the email with the notification


Any suggests?

Thanks in advance,

Re: ERROR (NOVM2BAK), details Error: no VMs to backup

Well, the program prints a list of all the VMs previous to performing a backup and p1-Printserver does not show up in your output, only vCLS does.

Run

vim-cmd vmsvc/getallvms

to check that fact out.

Re: ERROR (NOVM2BAK), details Error: no VMs to backup

Hi,
yes, in the end it was a simple thing.
The vm was moved.

I moved it back and the backup worked normally.

All solved.

Thank you very much for your help,
