Re: Unable to backup VM seems permission error and locked (solved)

We don't know what we can add to the error message:

The file "/vmfs/volumes/datastore1/VM1.TEST.local/VM1.TEST.local-flat.vmdk" is locked. Independent disks cannot be hot backed up, issue a cold backup for or exclude the disk from the backup. Make sure that the VM state (on/off) was not manually changed during the backup

Is that disk independent?, is it engaged in some scheme so that another process is holding it open?
Make sure that you don't have any previous (c)XSIBackup process running

ps -c | grep xsi

Re: Unable to backup VM seems permission error and locked (solved)

Thanks for your reply, It is running VPSHERE ESXI Server and its independent.

[root@localhost:/vmfs/volumes/5b97034d-d0fdbcd5-e679-842b2b4df21f/xsi-dir1] ps -c | grep xsi
2564014  2564014  grep                            grep xsi

That what im surprise, why its not allowing.

Is there any other troubleshooting tips.

Re: Unable to backup VM seems permission error and locked (solved)

We aren't getting you. We asume that you are indeed running (c)vSphere (c)ESXi in your host. What would be the reason to post here if you weren't running this system?

On addition to that. Please take the time to learn what an independent disk is and how it differentiates from other types of storage in (c)ESXi: post on (c)ESXi disk modes

Please be aware that independent disks cannot be hot backed up, use --backup-how=cold instead.

The message is already stating that point, thus: we don't understand where your doubt exactly is or what do your expect from us.

Re: Unable to backup VM seems permission error and locked (solved)

Your output is plagued with an error message stating that some VM registered to your host is simply not there.

Skipping invalid VM '26'

We can't help you to detect your issue when you haven't even paid attention to that "little detail". For a host to be backed up, first of all it must be in a good working condition and under the control of the Sysadmin.

(c)XSIBackup relies on the output from part of the shell to detect errors and act accordingly, it can't just work with a recurring error message constantly bubbling up the shell.

Re: Unable to backup VM seems permission error and locked (solved)

Yes correct, but we can ignore that Skipping, we never had due to that skipping.

Please look at the actual error, we are getting when running first time

Re: Unable to backup VM seems permission error and locked (solved)

Kindly reply for the above error, how can i resolve to make the backup run from two(2) VSPhere Exsi 6.5 Servers.

I wanted to backup FileServer-VM (192.168.3.208) and MailServer-VM (192.168.3.205) running on Each HOST ESXI 6.5 to Backup Server ESXI 6.5. (192.168.3.201)
I tried all possible ways.

Even tried to run by cold backup, still unable.


I tried this Jobs
# This is a backup job file example. It starts with the path to your
# xsibackup file and ends with the redirection to the log file. Please
# do make sure that you keep first and last lines, changing paths to
# match your working environment.
#--remote-xsipath=/vmfs/volumes/datastore1/xsi-dir \
#--on-success="backupId->002" \
#--on-error="backupId->002" \
"/vmfs/volumes/datastore1/xsi-dir/xsibackup" \
--backup-point="192.168.3.201:22:/vmfs/volumes/datastore1/Backup:D" \
--backup-type=Custom \
--backup-vms="mailsrv12" \
--backup-prog=oneDiff \
--backup-how=hot \
--backup-room=8000 \
--use-smtp=1 \
--mail-to=samad5589@gmail.com \
--backup-id=002 \
--description="MAILSERVER" \
--exec=yes >> "/vmfs/volumes/datastore1/xsi-dir/var/logs/xsibackup.log" > /dev/null 2>&1


************************************************************************************************************
When i ran

./xsibackup --run-backup=002

************************************************************************************************************
I get following error


[root@MAILSRV1:/vmfs/volumes/5b9e2fff-07031929-e40f-5820b10bcf4e/xsi-dir] ./xsibackup --run-backup=002
