I'm writing a script to run a backup of all vms from one of my ESXi hosts (1st argument) using vcbMounter.exe. I'd like to run multiple instances of the vcbmounter.exe tool in order to do the backups synchronously and speed up the backup (as opposed to doing them linearly)
Here's a sample of the script:
"C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Consolidated Backup Framework\vcbVmName.exe" -h %1 -u vcbuser -p vcbpass -s Any | find "name" > backup_list.txt
for /F "tokens=2 delims=:" %%i in (backup_list.txt) do (
start /B "" "C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Consolidated Backup Framework\vcbmounter.exe" -h %1 -u vcbuser -p vcbpass -a name:%%i -r D:\%1\%%i -t fullvm -M1 -m san >> %%i.log
Problem is some of the machines aren't able to create a snaphot and I get this error;
Is this a limitation of vcbMounter.exe? Is it capable of only running so many instances at once?
Any help is much appreciated...
