GhettoVCBg2

Hello,

we are recently discovered 4 version of ghettoVCBg2 and we are trying to use it from Vma, exists another more recent version than 4? if exists, where can we download it?

We have 3 Esxi Update 3 free version servers and one Esxi update 2 Foundation server, all with Vm´s on the local storage and with a shared NFS datastore in a Windows 2003 Server. We don´t have virtual center.

Our intentions are copy the local storage Vm´s of each server to NFS datastore. First we added all servers to Vma without problems with sudo vifp addserver IP and the password... when we execute the script from Vma "./ghettoVCBg2.pl --vmlist list", the file list contain the name of the Vm that we are using to test this proccess we obtain the log..

Everything seems to have gone well, but only the .vmx file is copied to NFS datastorage. In the vsphere console we can see that folder of the destination backup is created, snapshot is created and in the Vsphere client the copy file proccess fail with "error general fault cause by file. One of the parameters supplied is invalid",we have seen that this can be an error with the value of variable $DISK_BACKUP_FORMAT, in our case we have test with all values without best results.

Somebody had the same error?

Thanks
