  • 1.  Howto restore a vcbMounter backup to another ESX

    Posted Nov 02, 2009 01:17 PM

    We are running several ESX v4.0 servers. We are performing weekly TSM backup using the vcbMounter commands.

    We restored from TSM files generated by vcbMounter commands to an ESX server different 'let's call it ESX2) from the original ESX(let's call it ESX1)

    Now we are trying to use vcbRestore command as follow

    vcbRestore -h ESX -u root -s /vmfs/volumes/Storage2/backup/dummy/ -b prompt

    2009-11-02 12:20:45.141 F4F3CB60 info 'App' Current working directory: /vmfs/volumes/4ae85942-45970e50-afcc-00145e369718/backup

    Password:

    2009-11-02 12:20:51.248 F4F3CB60 error 'vcbRestore' Error: ResourcePool "/ha-folder-root/ha-datacenter/host/ESX/Resources" for VM not found.

    Is anyone try to do this such thing ?

    Our goal is to find out a solution for our disaster recovery plan where some servers are waiting on a backup site to recover service.

    regards

    I found out a solution using vCenter Converter tool in which you can start from a vcbMounter command result.

    Import a machine -> step 1: Source ->Source type : Other
