    ESXi 5.5: ghettoVCB does not backup any vm and no error is thrown

    SSC_ Lurker

      Hi all,

       

      After a recently change to the new ESXi 5.5 I'm facing the problem that ghettVCB does not perform a backup of any vm.

      All VMs have been converted to the news server using VMware vCenter Converter Standalone Client.

       

      Here are the most important information:

      # vmware -v

      VMware ESXi 5.5.0 build-1623387

      Backup target: iscsi Win Server 2012 R2 target server

       

      Below is the log output. I have 3 VM (MS Server 2012R2) running VMDK Version 8 and it seems to touch the VMs but keeps

      ongoing to the next till the end without any error message. The same script used on another machine (100% equal except the

      VM but all are version 8) works fine for me. The case statement for version verification was changed by myself to fit ESXi 5.5.

       

      Any good ideas are welcome.

       

      Logging output:
