Backup on remote server (eSXI)

Hello,

  • I have two ESXI on 2 public IP.

  • I had XSIFree running backup between those two host over SSH. My assumption here is that communication and authorization is OK.

  • Host 1 can ping Host 2, and vice versa.

  • I'm able to SSH to both host.

When trying a command from Host 1 (or 2) to backup to the other:

./xsibackup --backup "VMs(VM1)" root@XX.XX.XX.XX:22:/vmfs/volumes/datastore2/backup-fromE1 --remote-path=/scratch/xsi/xsibackup --rotate=7

Here is the output:

|||   (c)XSIBackup-DC 1.1.0.8: Backup & Replication Software                    |||

Is there anything I forgot?

Thanks for your help.

Re: Backup on remote server (eSXI)

Well, the message is straight concise and short

OpenSSH server at XX.XX.XX.XX:22 can't be reached, timed out

Are you able to SSH from host A to B?

ssh root@XX.XX.XX.XX "Echo 'Hello from Host B'"

Re: Backup on remote server (eSXI)

For some reasons between having XSI Free running, and setting up DC, SSH client was disabled in the firewall.

Thanks for your help.
