DOH!!! no "-s" it should be lowercase u:

C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Consolidated Backup Framework>vcbMounter.exe -h vcenter.lutzcpa.com -u super6 -p "My dog Pepper" -U b:\mnt\homer

Sorry I missed that one :o(

Also, add a "-L 6" to the end if you still have errors. It will give you a verbose log in %temp%

vcbmounter.exe -h host.com -s user -p pass -U b:\mnt\vmmachine

No "-r"

Dave,

I f i could bother you once again. I am trying to get all my vm's mounted so i can make up the backup jobs in Backup Execs and i have another issue with one. I am trying to mount it and it tells me that it already has a snapshot so it won't mount. There is no snapshot in that directory. Any idea on how i can get by this?? Here is the output. Any thoughts?? Thanks!!!

Error: Backup snapshot already

exists.

An error occurred, cleaning up

Double check using snapshot manager in the VI3 client. Also, you can try the vcbCleanup.bat utility. Somewhere along the line, it is tagged as having a snapshot. If non exist, you can try taking one and deleting it to clear the tags.
