How did you login to the console?
did you su - to set the path?
Basically a simple command to backup a vm would be:
The above command backs up a virtual machine called vm1 which is running on the local server. It uses the root ID and password to achieve this and dumps the output into the /backups/temp folder.
Thanks, I didn't know about the "-" that would set the path. I just used the plain su command. I am still a linux lightweight, so I appreciate the help.
