    ghettoVCBg2 won't back up VMDKs since upgrading to ESXi 5.1

    Mezlo Novice

      Last week I upgraded my ESXi hosts from 5.0u1 to 5.1. Prior to the upgrade all VMs were backing up without issue. Since then, on about 25% of my VMs ghettoVCBg2 won't back up any of the .vmdk files. It creates a snapshot, copies the .vmx file, then removes the snapshot and moves on to the next VM. There aren't any errors in the ghettoVCBg2 log (in fact, it says successfully completed backup). I'm still running vMA 5.0 but from other posts I've seen that shouldn't be an issue, especially since the other 75% of my VMS backup without issue. I can manually create a snapshot and copy the vmdk files using vmkfstools so I don't know what the hold up is.


      Any ideas on how I can go about troubleshooting this?
