http://serverfault.com – I'm on VMware ESXI 5.0.0 Update 1 and wanted to use the ghettoVCB script for backuping my VMs. The dryrun went perfectly fine: 2012-10-24 11:47:46 -- info: ###### Final status: OK, only a dryrun. ###### But when I try to do an actual backup, I get the following message for every VM on my host: 2012-10-24 11:48:43 -- info: Initiate backup for Willert-Tools 2012-10-24 11:48:43 -- info: Creating Snapshot "ghettoVCB-snapshot-2012-10-24" for Willert-Tools 2012-10-24 11:48:47 -- info: ERROR: error in backing up of "/vmfs/volumes/datastore1/Willert-Tools/Willert-Tools_1.vmdk" for Willert-Tools (HowTos)
