I'm trying to just grab the OS disk of a VM. The problem is that it's on local storage. I get the error:
Error: Failed to open the disk:
Cannot access a SAN/iSCSI LUN backing this virtual disk. (Hint: Option "-m ndb"
swtiches vcbMounter to network base disk access if this is what you want.)
... but there is no -m ndb option with vcbexport. If you try to use it, you just get the usage. Am I missing something? Or is there a better way of doing this? I could set the data drives to independent I guess and use our normal full vm backup.
May I know what the exact command you run? from esx or from vcb proxy?
Since I managed to get the only vmdk I want from vcb proxy (attached), I would expect the same result too if you run it locally in ESX. BTW, change to "independent", would be a good idea too..
