here is my cron entry now:
0 8 0 0 7 "/vmfs/volumes/System/ghettoVCB/ghettoVCB.sh -f /vmfs/volumes/System/ghettoVCB/lista" > "/vmfs/volumes/buffalo01/backup/backupVM.log"
and in syslog file errors occurs many times.
I've another question, my Vmware is licensed:
Product: VMware vSphere 5 Essentials Licensed for 2 physical CPUs (unlimited cores per CPU)
Up to 8-way virtual SMP
vCenter agent for VMware host
there isn't any other tools for backup instead of ghettoVCB?
thanks for support
I've find the problem, simply the crontab parse error on "day of week" column, I don't understand why number "7" does not read from crond .
The only way is to use name of the day , ex:"sun"
I think there might be a typo on the website that shows you how to create a cron job. The day of the week count starts at 0 so if we have 7 days in a week it has to be 0-6 and 7 woudl mean we have 8 days. If you're trying to set it for Sunday, it would be 0 whether it's 0-6 or 0-7 but I think there's a typo because if you look at the man pages or other sites, it's 0-6 for Sun-Sat
