I have followed the installation instructions for VCB and get errors when attempting to run browse-start.bat. This is my error:
C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Consolidated Backup Framework\backupexec>browse-start.bat TEST_BU vm1.domain.com
failed to prepare vm1.domain.com for backup, PrepareForBackup() returned error 1
External command failed. See error above.
Exit Code: 1
I am not able to see the ESX server's virtual machines in the backup GUI. Help please!
I guess I should elaborate on my setup first. I am running everything current. ESX 3.5, Virtual Center 2.5 and Backup Exec 11d. Everything is fully updated. I have two 1TB drives in a RAID1 that resides on the same server as the ESX installation (it is not a SAN) that is housing the VM's. Is there perhaps another way I need to "discover" my VM's if they aren't stored on a SAN? TIA!
