    VMDK_FILES_TO_BACKUP again ...

    michafrank Lurker

      Hello,

       

      after reading the stuff on google regarding VMDK_FILES_TO_BACKUP i still got problems or i don`t understand some things ...

       

      This is my command :

      As you can see i got a global and a separate vm config file for the exchange vm with the VMDK_FILES_TO_BACKUP statement.

      When i do a dryrun i see that the VMDK_FILES_TO_BACKUP="only one vmdk" statement is recognized, but

      the script allways tries to backup all vmdk Files.

       

      Overview of the Configfiles/Structure:

      Output of the dryrun:

       

      http://pastebin.com/1TCXa6xB

       

      All three vmdks are presented and the script wants to backup all three instead of the one defined in VMDK_FILES_TO_BACKUP in the vm cfg file ...

       

      Why i want to do this :

      VMDK_FILES_TO_BACKUP=all fails on this machine because one of the three disks is on an NFS mountpoint - the other two disks on a local disk array.

       

      So what i`m doing wrong ?  Any hints ?
