Error NOVM2BAK with REGEX and that doesn´t work

Hello,

I use XSI a while and everything worked good. Suddenly REGEX doesnt´t work and I get an error

Error NOVM2BAK: no VMs to backup
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Errors detected in backup, check logs
-------------------------------------------------------------

I look in the Logs, but there are no error, the file is empty, why that?

I have reinstalled the software again, but my problem is still.

What can I do?

I use VMware ESXi 6.7.0 build-13981272 and XSIBACKUP-FREE 11.2.6

My Command is the copy from your website.  ---> ./xsibackup --backup-point=/vmfs/volumes/NA202/xsi --backup-type=custom --backup-vms="REGEXP(^ubuntu)"

FluxBB bbcode test

Regards

Helga

XSIBackup uses grep regex engine. Practice with it in the command line before using your regexp.

echo "Ubuntu-VM" | grep -E "^Ubuntu"

I practice with the command and your command is working. I have understood Regex

But now I have tried the same command on xsi Backup. But it is not working. I have an machine with ubuntu16 and the command looking for ubuntu. Why did my Command not find the VM. I did everything right

Sorry Helga, we didn't realize that this is a Pro feature, the REGEXP module is in the src/pro/vmsregexp file.

Re: Error NOVM2BAK with REGEX and that doesn´t work

the man page https://33hops.com/xsibackup-help-man-page.html
does not list REGEXP as an option exclusive to XSIBACKUP-PRO

You should update the man page accordingly.
