Hi all.


I'm trying to use the script, but i'm getting a "the specified VM is
invalid" mesage.

How do I solve that?

In order to solve the problem you need to specify more details.

For example, can you please paste here the complete command line
you're using when you get the error?
Also, could you paste here the output of "backup_vmwareXXX.sh -l" ?
(XXX is your version of the script)

Regards,

Michele

Think I solved the problem. It was misconfiguration in the script.

Thanks.
